Josie Molloy, a native Oregonian who grew up on a cattle ranch in Southeastern Oregon by Crane, has worked with the business community since 2010, after graduating from the University of Wyoming with a degree in Communications.
For the last twelve years, she lived in Laramie, Wyoming. And for eight of those years she served as Vice President of Membership for the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, the local Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development center.
Elated to be back in Oregon and serving as the Grants Pass & Josephine County Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, she knows Grants Pass has a lot to offer and is eager to be part of the business community and advocate for our local businesses. When she is not at work, she and her husband, Cairn, enjoy hiking, fishing, and camping.
My daughter and I came to Grants Pass in 1980. I started with the chamber part time while going to Rogue Community College to get a degree in business. Shortly after I graduated, there was a full-time position opening. Working at the chamber and being a part of the business community in Grants Pass is an honor. For fun, I spend as much time as possible on the Rogue River and camping nearby. I also collect rocks and read a lot. Please don’t hesitate to call if I can be of service.
Sales & Marketing
Joining the team at the Chamber and our Visitors Center has allowed me to use all my skills and talents from previous industries and companies, to partner and promote Josephine County local business and commerce.
Josephine County has such a rich history and many micro regions from Cave Junction, Oregon Caves, Applegate Wineries and Merlin our Gateway to the Rogue. The Chamber is about Commerce and I enjoy being a part of positive change, and listening to great ideas from our community.
Art served 21 years with U.S. Navy Seabees as a heavy equipment operator. He and his wife Patty and two sons Chris and Sean moved to the Rogue Valley from Southeast Virginia in 2007.
Art is the Chamber’s Customer Service Representative. He greets customers in person and by phone to assist them in all the great attractions, restaurants and things to do while visiting the area. He happily works the weekends and holidays during the summer when the Visitors Center is open 7 days a week.
Art says “This has been one of the most rewarding positions I have ever had. I get to enjoy the community, its citizens and the tourists I serve”.
Programs & Events
It is an honor to be a part of such an amazing and creative team. Having experience in organizing many local well-known events for the Town Center Association, the Chamber was a natural fit. I have a passion for event planning which is vital to creating a healthy commerce for our town. I enjoy promoting and living in this beautiful community we call home.
