Following five years of service as Executive Director of the OPRF Chamber of Commerce, Cathy Yen has announced her resignation.
Cathy has accepted a position as the Director of Operations with Beat the Streets, a Chicago-based not for profit focused on developing youth through mentoring and sports activities. She will assume her new role in early October, according to a press release.
Around Oak Park is a member of the Chamber, so I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside Cathy. Her enthusiasm for everything Oak Park-River Forest is unparalleled and you can tell that she wants small businesses to succeed. That’s certainly something I am sincerely grateful for and I will miss not seeing her around as often.
The Chamber has not yet specified who will serve as the new Executive Director of the Chamber.
From everyone at the AOP team, we wish Cathy the best in the next chapter of her life.
