SAC disbands by group consensus
The Student Ambassador Committee, a high school age business oriented youth group established last January under the aegis of the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce, has disbanded.
Chamber president Mike Harward announced the decision at the last chamber lunch at Stephani’s Restaurant. Harward said that the decision was made by the high school students in the group and not the chamber. “We had about 14 kids, maybe eight to 10 active, and they felt uncomfortable with the level of support they were getting from some members of the chamber,” Harward said. At the same time Harward announced his resignation from the chamber’s board as president effective October 19.
