- Amanda was once voted “Most likely to be friends with Members” because of the amount of time she spends with members both inside and outside of business hours.
- Amanda’s favorite Chamber event is a tie between the West Michigan CEO Summit and the Annual Meeting: State of Business. Hearing the impactful stories from leaders in West Michigan and the amazing things happening right here in our community gives her so much energy and inspiration.
