We have two new members on our board of directors; check out their information below. Welcome, Michael and Christie!

As always, if there is anything that we can do for you, we are just an email, phone call or office visit away.

Best wishes! 


Erin Corbell
Director, Chamber of Commerce and Finance
Welcome to Our New
Board Members!

We had a great voting turnout for our new Chamber Directors, so thank you to all who participated! Everyone please welcome Michael Cook and Christie Payne to our Board of Directors.

Michael is a Junior Accountant for Fairmount Minerals, the company that recently purchased FTS International. He is looking forward to volunteering his time to the community, and also volunteers with Brady Youth Sports, Brady ISD and has previously volunteered for Chamber events.

Christie works in Customer Service at Cadre Proppants. With her tenure on the board, Christie hopes to continue to develop the strong bond between Cadre and this community, and help develop the ever evolving tourism industry in our county. In the past, she has volunteered her time with the YMCA, the United Way Fundraising Campaign, and the Special Olympics.

We are excited to have these two join our existing Board of Directors, who are looking forward to serving you!
