Four executive directors have been fired from the Palisade Chamber of Commerce in just two years.
While the quick turnover rate is generating controversy for its board of directors, chamber members say they're not concerned.
“They’re just going through their changes and the town is still doing well," Kim Henderson said.
It’s been just seven months since Henderson opened up her own store, Lupita’s Bazaar, in downtown Palisade.
She’s a first time business owner, who's been weary of troubles at the town's chamber of commerce.
"It is scary to see things happening with the chamber right now and this is a very scary time to be in business,” Henderson said. “The businesses are really pulling together in Palisade to make things positive and pull through these hard times. Things are still happening in palisade."
Just up the street, Rapid Creek Cycles says the string of directors at the chamber makes close to no difference to its operations.
Manager Joel Rosenstrauch says, "From my point of view, from the outside at least, everything seems pretty much the same."
Despite the adapting chamber, the bike shop is sure the town’s reputation isn't at stake.
Lupita's Bazaar agrees and says in the end this will be a positive experience for Palisade.
"I think the chamber is working through some kinks and they're going to pull things through,” Henderson said.
Members of the board did say they are currently looking for a new executive director.
