To our valued members and friends:

First and foremost, I want to thank you for your continued support of the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce. You are the reason that the Chamber has been so successful over the last three years.

It is with bittersweet feelings that I am writing to inform you of my plans to leave the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce at the end of this month. I have truly enjoyed working with you for the betterment of our fine City, and I really feel that we have accomplished a great deal working together.

As a result of my resignation, the Chamber’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to promote current Director of Events Kassandra “Kasey” Gove, who I had hired last year with this eventual succession in mind. Since joining the Chamber, Kasey has immersed herself in the organization by learning every aspect of what we do. She is an experienced leader, with strong event planning, budgeting and marketing skills. What’s more, she is a fifth-generation Amesbury native who is already well connected to the community and many of our members.

I share the Board’s confidence in Kasey and know she will be an effective Executive Director. I encourage you to reach out to Kasey to introduce yourself and welcome her to this new position.

Thank you very much for your support. If there is anything I can help you with before my departure, please let me know.


Melissa Cerasuolo
Executive Director
Amesbury Chamber of Commerce
