Chamber Chair appoints two new board members
The Minot Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors Chair, Doug Hollingsworth (North Star Community Credit Union), appointed two of three possible new board members to one-year terms as allowed by Chamber bylaws. The third board member will be announced in a future issue of the newsletter. They are Carrie Montoya (Watne Realtors) and Lucas Hachmeister (Scheels).
Montoya is a realtor and part owner of Watne Realtors, Inc. She has been a realtor in the area for more than 16 years. She and her family moved here from Colorado Springs, where she served in the United States Air Force. Prior to retiring from the USAF after 22 years, she had served as medical inspector for the Space Command Inspector General Office.
She holds an associate’s degree in medical administration and a bachelor’s degree in human resource management. Montoya has been a long-time member of the Chamber of Commerce and has served as president of the Minot Board of Realtors. Additionally, she has been active with the VFW post.
She and her husband, who also served 27 years before retiring from the USAF, have three grown children. They enjoy spending time at their lake house, boating, fishing, and the outdoor activities North Dakota has to offer.
Hachmeister serves as the store leader at SCHEELS All Sports in Minot, a position he’s held since January 2017. He previously worked in various capacities in Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, and Fargo. He received a bachelor of science degree from Creighton University.
Hachmeister is currently working with the Chamber’s Maximize Minot Committee, and serves as a member on the boards of the Western North Dakota Red Cross and the Magic City Discovery Center.
He and his wife have a three-year-old son and a one-and-a-half-year-old daughter. When not spending time with family, he enjoys hunting and fishing.
