Sequim chamber elects Everett, Robinson to board

SEQUIM — The Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce has added two members to its board of directors.

Chamber members elected Colleen Robinson, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County, and Sheila Everett, director of the Olympic View Community Foundation, to serve three-year terms that begin in January. They will be installed at a chamber luncheon on Jan. 24.

Robinson has served on both the Sequim and Port Angeles chamber boards in the past and serves now on the board for the Clallam Economic Development Council. She was also appointed to Peninsula Housing Authority as a board commissioner. For five years, Robinson served as the executive director for the Lavender Festival in Sequim.

For her role with Habitat, she was promoted from Community Outreach Director for Habitat to CEO in 2017, and has steered them to amazing growth, building their affiliate housing production by 300 percent annually, chamber representatives noted in a press release.

Everett joined the team at Olympic View Community Foundation after more than 12 years with United Way of Clallam County and the Clallam Community Foundation, where she administered the Albert Haller Foundation grants and United Way funding.

Her experience with both local grant and local government funding, as well as her familiarity with a broad range of non-profit organizations, are enthusiastically welcomed by the chamber team, the organization said.

Everett has lived in Clallam County since 1987 and is a big enthusiast of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley.

During 2022, two board members were unable to complete their terms, so Mitch Koonz with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and Philip Trowbridge with Edward Jones were appointed by the board during the fall to complete the two vacated terms.

Reappointed for an additional term on the chamber board are Pam Scott, who recently retired from Home Instead, and Julianne Coonts of Costco Wholesale. Leonard Anderson, as past president, will remain with the board through 2023.

Elections are held every November for the Chamber Board, and there are as many as four seats per year to be filled. There are also courtesy board member positions available.
