We’re saddened to hear that Newcastle Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Imelda Dulcich will step down from her post.

Dulcich has single-handedly raised the profile of the local chamber, providing valuable social media promotion for its businesses and serving as a friendly community connector.

Her position was only part-time, but it was clear that Dulcich dedicated more effort and energy than her duties required.

Dulcich’s ability to recruit top-notch speakers made the chamber luncheons must-attend events. Because of her, the Newcastle business community got to hear from the likes of U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, King County Sheriff John Urquhart and King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg.

One of Dulcich’s greatest undertakings was the transformation of the Diamond Awards into a lavish evening affair. She made the community awards feel special again, and we hope that continues.

Though we know the Newcastle resident won’t suddenly disappear from the community, chamber events certainly won’t be the same without her leading them.

Like any good behind-the-scenes facilitator, Dulcich doesn’t care for the spotlight. Whenever possible, she heaped praise on the chamber members on the board.

But the reality is, Dulcich was a big reason the chamber has felt so welcoming, personable and connected recently.

Whoever replaces her has some big shoes to fill.

    Imelda will definitely be missed. Because of Imelda’s professionalism and kindness, she made everyone feel special and an integral part of the community, whether you were part of a large business or a small non profit. We at the Weed Warriors environmental organization wish Imelda the very best in all she does in the future!
