Elkins-Randolph County Chamber of Commerce has welcomed a new executive director just in time for Small Business Saturday.  

Executive Director Lisa Messinger Wood has spent her first days meeting with committee members, business owners and local organizations since starting more than a week ago.  Wood said she is eager to see how well attended the event will be for Randolph County communities.

“Shop Small is an opportunity for both the customers and the shopkeepers in small towns and small places with small businesses to share their dream.  There’s that intimate, one-on-one connection that they can make together,” said Wood.

Wood said she plans to work closely with the community leaders to grow the network of businesses in Randolph County.
