Mary Bradshaw, Greater Leander Chamber of Commerce president, announced her resignation Dec. 5, saying she is proud of the work she has done at the chamber.

The resignation is effective Dec. 31.

“We have come such a long way, and I’ve loved working with the city, business owners and the whole business community,” she said. “It’s just time to move on.”

Bradshaw began working at the Leander Chamber of Commerce in January 2005. She said she will stay in the area to be near family but could not speak about her immediate future plans.

Stephanie Samuels, the chamber’s board of directors Chairwoman, said the search for a replacement will begin immediately. The board is scheduled to meet Dec. 11 to discuss and review the responsibilities and requirements of the position.

“We would like to have the position filled as soon as possible and be ready to start in January 2013,” Samuels said.
