Chamber recognizes Deb Cisco for 25 years of service and outgoing Chairman Bill Bacon

GENESEO, N.Y. - The Livingston County Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual meeting luncheon at the Valley Oak Conference Center on December 14, 2013, honoring Outgoing Chairman Bill Bacon, as well as Member Benefits Specialist/Director of Financial Administration Deborah Cisco for her 25 years of service at the Chamber.

Incoming Chairman John Quinlan spoke about Deborah's commitment to the Chamber and its members throughout the years. "Her passion for not only her job, but her customers, has led her to Albany where she testified before a healthcare panel on the need to allow chambers the ability to offer a full menu of affordable health insurance plans. Each year she struggles to make sure that folks find solutions to the ever-increasing premiums by looking for alternative policies and coverage to fit their needs."

Quinlan also highlighted some of Mr. Bacon's achievements as Chairman, which include:

  • Expanding the Chamber's menu of insurance options for members through a mutually-beneficial partnership with Capital Management Services.
  • A collaboration with the Livingston County Development Corporation and the Chamber's Tourism and Marketing Department to administer a very successful buy local campaign through the county.
  • A rebranding of the Chamber logo which identifies the key components of industry, agriculture and quality of life, including a tag line which indicates Chamber members are "Teaming with Excellence."
  • Continued popularity and growth of two of the Chamber's largest fundraisers-the golf tournament and the Farmer Neighbor Dinner.
  • Introduced the Chamber to a new age of communication by going live with a series of electronic media applications to spread the word about what's happening around Livingston County.
  • Increased the number of community sponsorships to include new members at the gold and silver level.

The meeting also recognized outgoing directors George Kuyon of Deer Run Winery, Bonnie Swanson of Key Bank Geneseo and Patrick Rountree of Livingston County IDA.

During the meeting, the Board of Directors approved the 2013 slate of officers:

  • John Quinlan, Quinlan's Pharmacy - Chairman
  • Matt Cole, Commodity Resource Corp. & North Shore Grill - Vice Chairman
  • Mike Schinski, SUNY Geneseo - Secretary
  • Georgia Macauley, Macauley Farms - Treasurer
  • Bill Bacon, Five Star Bank - Past Chairman
  • Ian Coyle, Livingston County Board of Supervisors - At Large Member

The meeting also addressed the Livingston County Tourism Office's name change to the Livingston County Area Chamber of Commerce Office of Tourism and Marketing to reflect the office's innovated new ways of reaching visitors through expanded internet and traditional marketing techniques. Tourism Director Lisa Burns' title now changed to Vice President of the Office of Tourism and Marketing.

At the end of the meeting, Burns unveiled the cover of the official 2013 Livingston County Visitors Guide, which, for the first time, is a fold-out cover revealing a stunning photo of Letchworth State Park, the Grand Canyon of the East taken by local photographer Larry Tetamore. Burns said 100,000 copies of the guide will be printed.
