Fall 2018

This is not Goodbye, but See You Soon!

Keri Goodwin

It is with mixed emotions that I have made the decision to begin a new chapter with Hanner Supercenter beginning October 1st.  I will still be involved with the Chamber, but a lot of the job duties that I had with the City of Baird allowed extra time to work on operation, website upkeep, events, membership, projects, Depot maintenance, and business relationships.  I have enjoyed working with all of you, and I will continue to stay involved in our community.  Thank you for every ounce of support you have displayed to me the past four years!  Dela Pickens will transition into my position as Community Coordinator with the City of Baird, and this includes daily Chamber activities and functions.  It is my plan to continue serving on the Chamber Board of Directors as well.  We have a great team to carry the Chamber forward.

Farewell Wishes

Dela Pickens

We would like to wish Keri Goodwin well in her new role at Hanner Supercenter!

New Website

Chamber Nation, our website host, has reconstructed our current website.  Check out bairdchamber.com to see the new layout.  It looks new and refreshing to the viewer.  We are in the process of updating some information as well. 


Chamber meets in the Depot at 5:30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

City Council meets in the Council Board Room at 6:00pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
