The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce has hired a director of economic development, chamber President Christie Moore announced on Monday. Betsy McGriff is stepping into the new role that is a product of the chamber’s multi-year partnership with the Development Authority of Dawson County, which went into effect in May of this year. The two groups officially joined forces to help the authority manage day-to-day tasks after former executive director of the authority, Charlie Auvermann, resigned in September 2017. The new director of economic development is an employee of the chamber of commerce, but the development authority board still has an active role in deciding who serves in the position.
