My name is Neesa Williams and I am married to Ken Williams. The most important role in my life is being a good wife and a "grammy" to three beautiful grandchildren. When I moved here in 2005,I immediatley fell in love with Fitzgerald and wanted to make it my home. I curerntly serve on a number of boards and am involved in community and civic organizations. I am also honored to serve as a city council member. I have had a long running career in the banking industry. 


During that career I had the privilege to learn a multide of skills. These are the skills I plan to utilze in growing "our" chamber of commerce and playing a role in the growth and success for Fitzgerald-Ben Hill County. With the partnership of our chamber members we will build a chamber that is all about business relationships. I invision the chamber as a conduit in which all members will have a voice in the community. In the near future you will begin to see changes in how the chamber functions. My goal and the goal of the chamber board is to place the members in a leadership role. A role where local businesses strongly influence how we together support community growth and assist local businesses to not just survive but truly THRIVE.  Soon I will be knocking on doors and asking every business owner to join the chamber. If you are a current member I will be thanking you for your membership and asking you for your continued support. I will also be asking for and hopefully receiving valuable input as to how the chamber can, help YOU!


Together a team is much more successful that a lone player on the sidelines. That lone player when getting in the game just might be the one to help score those runs or the touchdown we need to make us a winning team. I am honored and look forward to the opportunity to serve as your new Executive Director of the Chamber. Now let's get our team ready, get in the game and showcase OUR hometown!!!!
