Nora Amato takes the helm of the chamber on Monday, nearly four months after the sudden and mysterious departure of its previous director.
Years ago, when she worked for Allegiant Bank and was involved in opening its branch at Kehrs Mill and Clarkson roads, Nora Amato reached out to the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce for help. "They got the word out to everyone," Amato said. "They engaged me to have First Thursday Coffee. They introduced us to the other business members who could help me or learn more about Chesterfield, about where I needed to spend my marketing dollars." It wasn't the last time Amato opened a new bank branch in Chesterfield — and it wasn't the last time she leaned on the Chamber of Commerce for help. She speaks fondly of working with Carol Joan "Joanie" Schmelig, the chamber's 30-year veteran director who died a little more than a year ago of cancer. …

Among the speakers, the director for the Joplin-Area Chamber of Commerce will speak about Joplin businesses’ experiences with the post-tornado recovery.
Natural disasters happen. Most notable among them in Chesterfield was the flood of 1993, in which approximately 12,000 families lost their homes. Residents call it “The Great Flood.” There were not long strip-malls back then. No Galaxy Theater, no Walmart, no Target, and other hundreds of shops and restaurants which now decorate the area called the Chesterfield Valley. If anything like the flood, a tornado or an earthquake were to happen in the area, the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce wants to ensure business owners know how to prepare— and rebuild. The Chamber is currently accepting registration to their Disaster Preparedness Seminar for Business, an event with speakers and activities designed to educate business owners on how to …

Chamber directors mum: "Not anyone's business."
There's been no public explanation for the abrupt departure of Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Robey Taylor after six months on the job.
