Todd's letter below:

As of February 1st I have resigned as President of the Idyllwild Chamber of Commerce. While my reasons are personal my belief in the community as a whole has not wavered. I thank all of those who have supported the Chamber in its endeavors while I have been a part of it.

Please remember that the Board is a twelve member group but the Chamber membership of businesses and individuals and the business community as a whole make it work. The communities support is a vital part of the organization.
