Wendy Baxter, Director of the Lake Barkley Chamber of Commerce, was in studio Wednesday morning to talk to WPKY about upcoming events.

Wendy took the first few minutes to introduce herself. While she’s only been the Director the Lake Barkley Chamber of Commerce since July she has spent 16 years in local government in Marshall County, her home county, working with community and economic development and county planning. She told listeners that she strives to be a director who knows business members, who the business members know is working for them, instead of a director that merely shows up when money is due.
