The Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce our newest team member – Caitlin Cheney, as our Marketing Communications Manager. In this role, Caitlin will be responsible for communications, promotions and marketing the business of the Chamber, including membership, programming, community relations and tourism in Schuyler County.

Caitlin's roots are in the Finger Lakes regions where she grew up in Schuyler County. She has been a busy entrepreneur from the very beginning, starting a successful art business when she was just a teenager. She attended the State University of New York at Oswego and earned a Bachelor's in Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Design. Very soon after graduation, Caitlin's husband and herself begin their journey into running a long-term and short-term rental property business.

In Caitlin's own words, “If there is one thing, I am most passionate about, it is giving everyone visiting our region the most authentic experience possible. Our area is bursting at the seams with history, beauty, and adventure - but our people are what really makes it shine! I am delighted to start my new role at the WGACC and can't wait to get to know my community on a deeper level."
