Sidney Welcomes New Chamber Director, June Hesser


The new Executive Director of the Sidney Chamber, June Hesser, is excited to be a part of the Sidney community.

The Executive Director of the Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture, June Hesser, started on Monday, Sept. 12th. Her number one priority is strengthening the significance of Chamber membership and community. One new service she is initiating is improved communications via their member newsletter and through social media.

"Sidney is such a strong and vibrant community and I'm excited to get to know the people and help businesses. I want people to know that the Chamber is here to bring added value to their business, and to assist in business networking and community engagement," said Hesser.

Hesser is from Havre, MT, where she was an entrepreneur for 17 years; Hesser owned and operated Pardi Gras, which was a retail bridal business, and worked as a jewelry consultant with Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski.

One of Hesser's hobbies was booking and promoting bands. While she was in Williston, ND promoting a Great White show in 2014, she got an offer to contract for three months with the local Job Service. Soon after, she was introduced to the Executive Director of the Williston Chamber of Commerce, and took a job as the Events Manager. It was one day while reading The Roundup newspaper that she saw that the Sidney Chamber was looking for an Executive Director. Hesser was interviewed in August, and hired shortly thereafter.

"I felt that this was a great opportunity and that I could really make a difference in this community because of my business background and experience at the Williston Chamber," Hesser commented. "Sidney has many hidden treasures and the involvement of the board members is very impressive. I see this as a small town with a big heart and I relate to that. I'm proud to be a Montanan, and being in Sidney is like being home."

Hesser is currently in the process of relocating from Williston to Sidney, and in her down time she enjoys spending time with her three daughters who attend college in Bozeman, Missoula, and Havre.

"I would love for people to stop by the Chamber with ideas about how we can improve. If there are business owners out there who are struggling in some area, I want to help them get back on track. That's what the Chamber of Commerce is here for," she concluded.

The Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is located at 909 South Central Ave, and is open Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm.
