Barber Joins Chamber as Membership Director

Lesley Barber has joined the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce as Membership Director, a newly created position. In this role, Barber will be responsible for meeting with businesses throughout Coweta County, promoting the Chamber’s services, and enrolling new Chamber members. She will also help determine the business community’s expectations of and desires for the Chamber and use that information to support ongoing updates and changes in the Chamber’s programs and services to deliver maximum value for its members.

Barber was most recently a Real Estate Consultant with Parks and Mottola, Inc., in Newnan. An Illinois native, Barber moved to the Atlanta area in 1999. She has extensive experience in marketing and business development.

“We are delighted to have Lesley join our team,” said Candace LaForge, Chamber president. “Her experience and her go-getter spirit will be a great addition to our committed staff, and we anticipate that she will make great strides in spreading the benefits of the Chamber to more businesses throughout Coweta County.”

“This position really is a perfect fit for my skills and interests,” said Barber. “I’m passionate about the role of the Chamber in our community and the instrumental role it plays in increasing economic prosperity.”

In addition to her work, Barber also volunteers as a fundraiser and Host Committee chairman for the Atlanta-based Kool Kidz Foundation, which helps to create camps for special-needs children. She and her husband, Shawn, have a three-year-old son, John Austin, and live in Newnan.
