Please join The Connection in congratulating Castle Pines Chamber of Commerce Events Director Whitney Shank for receiving the 2018 Team Member of the Year award by the Colorado Chamber of Commerce Executives organization at its annual conference in May.
“I love what I do at the chamber,” said Shank. “Planning these events has given me the opportunity to bring together our community and our local businesses. I have been able to meet so many amazing people through this job, and this award is validation that everything we are doing at the chamber is having a positive impact on our community.”
Since joining the chamber staff in 2017, Shank has been instrumental in elevating the chamber’s events, both internally and those hosted throughout the community. Her flair and creativity can be seen in everything the chamber does, from table displays to event folders.
Shank is a Colorado native and has lived in Castle Pines since 2005 with her husband and three children. She is a former school teacher and is still very active volunteering in her kids’ schools.
“Whitney has taken our events to a new level,” stated Chamber Executive Director Amy Shanahan. “We are so lucky to have her as part of our team!”
