Molly Hodgson recently announced she will be stepping down as president of the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce effective Jan. 1, 2018. She will be succeeded by Katie MacKinnon, currently vice president of member engagement for the chamber. Hodgson will remain with the Dover Chamber as a part-time development and special projects director.
"My personal circumstances have changed requiring me to refocus my priorities," says Hodgson. "I am grateful to the board for allowing me to continue to bring value to the organization in a way that allows for more balance between career and family. I couldn't be happier that my colleague, Katie, will be succeeding me as president."
MacKinnon says that during her six-year tenure as president, Hodgson has significantly elevated the stature of the chamber through a fiscal evolution, cultivation of new revenue streams, effective constituent engagement, and strategic staff development. "To my benefit, she has performed this work with thoughtful transparency and encouraged my participation at the decision-making level throughout my four years of service to the chamber. Doing so has helped me gain hands-on experience with the tasks of leading this dynamic organization that will position me for success in the capacity of president," MacKinnon says. "I look forward to building upon Molly's legacy to ensure the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce continues its upward trajectory in membership and delivery of programs, and upholds its reputation as one of the state's most progressive chambers. Molly and I will continue to work closely on strategy and vision for the chamber. I will also ensure that our staff is afforded the same environment for growth and learning that Molly fostered."
