  • Dawn Sharpe 

    Chief Executive Officer

    Opening doors for business and community opportunities is what the East St. Tammany is about.  Going into my tenth year as CEO, it is an honor to represent the community I was born and raised in.  Being a mother and a business woman, I understand it is important to build relationships with people we can trust.  Your Chamber is here to do that for you.  With a genuine staff who truly cares about that forward progress of our business climate, it is a joy to work for our community everyday building prosperity for growth and providing opportunities for our membership. 
    I hope that you use our website to support our Chamber members, ABC.  Our region offers you a variety of resources to satisfy your needs. From cafés to fine dining, from clothing stores to upscale boutiques,  from antique shops to professional art paintings, from spas to health clubs, from auto parts to new automobiles. The list goes on and on.  You can find everything you need to satisfy your professional and family needs. Help keep our local economy rolling by spending your hard earned dollars to support the businesses in our area and prove that we are proud of the businesses located here and support “Buy Local”.
    Please stop by and visit community Chamber home, you can shop downstairs with over 30 local artist, and use our free wifi.  I look forward to seeing you soon.
