“It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while now,” Miller said. “I’ve been in this business for a long time and as I continued to reflect on it, retiring in early 2017 became more realistic and workable.” Miller added, “My husband and I are looking forward to a slower pace.”

"Pamela Miller has brought outstanding ability, solid expertise, and strong leadership to the Convention and Visitors Bureau during the past 12 years,” said CVB Advisory Board Chair Jamie Highsmith. “It has been a pleasure to serve as a volunteer under her direction. On behalf of the entire CVB board, we will miss Pamela and wish her only the best."

Chamber President Dan Koenig had nothing but praise for Miller. “Pamela has done some wonderful work here and I hope you will join me in congratulating her,” said San Angelo Chamber President Dan Koenig. “Her hard work and influence on local, regional and statewide tourism has had a very positive impact over the years.” Koenig noted one recent example of Miller’s work being her positive influence in getting a full-page story about San Angelo placed in a recent Sunday edition of the Dallas Morning News. “This is a prime example of just some of the work Pamela has done behind the scenes,” Koenig said.

Other updates at the Chamber include:

Suzanna Aguirre has been promoted to Director of Sales and Servicing at the San Angelo Convention and Visitors Bureau. Aguirre’s promotion stems from a vacancy created when Jenni Campbell resigned to relocate with her husband, Brian, to Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“When we looked at the vacant position of Director or Sales and Servicing, it quickly became obvious that Suzanna was the perfect fit,” Koenig said. Hired in June 2013, Koenig said “Suzanna’s skills, experience and knowledge of San Angelo made this decision a no-brainer, not to mention the accolades and recognition she’s received during her time here.”

“I am humbled and honored to be given the opportunity to serve our community in this new capacity,” Aguirre said. “San Angelo has much to offer to visitors attending conferences and sporting events. We have top-notch facilities and unique attractions and I am excited to assist visitors in becoming familiar with all we have to offer.”

The San Angelo Chamber of Commerce is a business advocacy organization with over 1,100 members. The Chamber’s goal is to foster and promote a business and tourism environment that assures the economic growth and well-being of its members and the community.
