Statement of the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce Regarding Recent Allegations

Since receiving the initial workplace conduct allegations from a former employee last week and a recent anonymous email today, which was immediately forwarded to the outside investigator, the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors has taken these allegations seriously and moved immediately to investigate them.

The Board voted unanimously on Monday to bring in an experienced independent investigator to conduct a thorough and complete investigation and report back to the Board as soon as the investigation is complete. The Board’s commitment is to have an investigation done independently and with integrity.

This investigation is currently underway and is expected to take approximately thirty days. During the investigation, the investigator has complete discretion on who to interview following where the facts lead. As the independent investigation continues, the Board will withhold judgment until the investigator provides the report to the full Board.
