The function was one of the first for Christine Miller, the new Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce president.
The United Food Bank of Plant City hosted the Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Business After Hours networking event Thursday, Aug. 18.
It was a blast to the not-too-distant past for Chamber President Christine Miller. Miller was the most recent director of the United Food Bank before taking over as Chamber president Monday, Aug. 15.
Between networking and a tour of the United Food Bank’s headquarters on Alsobrook Street, the United Food Bank board of directors updated attendees on the search for a new director.
“We truly miss Christine,” Chairman George Banning said. “When Christine first came here, we were in one room. We’re now up to six units, and we’ve bought the building.”
The board of directors has ended the application period for the vacant director position. Until someone is hired, Miller will continue to serve as a consultant.
“We interviewed everyone who we felt had the qualifications necessary to run the food bank,” Banning said. “We have been interviewing diligently.”
A new director will likely be named in one to two weeks.
