Chamber's Chapman looks back, ahead upon retirement
Peggy Chapman gets a big hug from Charles Wilson while talking with Russell Keen, right, as Chapman is recognized and honored in anticipation of her retirement.
After 20 years of promoting business and industrial development in Bulloch County, Peggy Chapman is retiring as president of the Statesboro-Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce and as executive director of the Development Authority of Bulloch County. On Friday, Chapman is calling it quits after spearheading a period of unprecedented growth in which chamber membership grew to more than 900 members, and 32 new industries opened facilities in the county. "When I came here in 1990, it was my dream to have a chamber that worked in conjunction with the development authority," Chapman said.
