Carbondale Chamber of Commerce director Dixie Heyl resigned from the position Thursday, effective immediately, said Ted Reed, chamber president.

“Dixie has been enthusiastically received by the business community, and the community at large,” Reed said. “She was instrumental in strengthening the chamber board, and expanding and solidifying the chamber membership.”

Heyl was not available for comment.

Reed said Heyl was hired a year ago, and worked to develop the chamber’s one- to five-year plan.

“Her vision has been above reproach,” Reed said. “Her energy and enthusiasm will be sadly missed as the chamber continues to rapidly pursue its long-term development plan.”

Reed said the chamber will quickly start its search to replace Heyl, and has two or three applicants in mind.
