Julia Jordan chosen as new CEO of the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce

Mark Luster, president of the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce, has announced Julia Jordan, of Grass Valley, has been selected as the Chief Executive Officer for the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce, effective March 2.

According to Luster, “Following an extensive search, we are very excited about the opportunities we have with Julia joining the Lincoln business community in the Chamber’s top leadership role. She not only has extensive chamber and downtown association experience, but also brings the creative energy we’ve been looking for.”

Jordan joined the Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce in 2006, and has been serving as the Executive Director/CEO of Grass Valley’s Downtown Association since 2012. She is a business/economics graduate of UC Santa Barbara, and has an extensive background with organizations including the Nevada County Tourism Committee, and the California Main Street Alliance where she serves as vice president.

The Chamber’s members include Thunder Valley Resort, Pacific Gas & Electric Co., Sutter Roseville Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, Eskaton of Granite Bay & Roseville, the Placer County Board of Supervisors, Gladding McBean and JMC Homes, among hundreds of others.

Lincoln’s Historic Downtown District stretches from First Street to Seventh Street between G and E Streets and is known for its friendly merchants and small-town charm. Annual Chamber and community events include a July 4th parade and fireworks, a downtown Farmer’s Market, Tour de Lincoln, Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting and more.

In 2006 Lincoln, with a population of about 45,000 people, was named “All America City” by the National Civic League. The prestigious All America City Award is an honor bestowed by the National Civic League recognizing communities of all sizes that have made major progress in meeting their most important needs. Since 1949, more than 4,000 communities have competed and nearly 500 have been designated All-America Cities.

In the early 1900s, the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce was established as a non-profit corporation of voluntary membership that invested time and money to carry forward programs set forth by its Board of Directors. The Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce still carries forth that spirit.
