As the new director of the Iola Area Chamber of Commerce, Jill Hartman wants to bring a little bit of sunshine to local businesses. 

“My approach is to lead by example. Shop local. Keep a positive attitude and remember that a smile can be contagious. I want camaraderie. I want us to be working with other entities,” she said.

Hartman took over as Chamber director a couple of months ago. She’ll be available Friday for a meet-and-greet session during a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Chamber’s new location in the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. The event doubles as a retirement reception for the Chamber’s longtime secretary, Aileen Wilson, and will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. in the lobby at the Bowlus.
