Tom Even has been named executive director of the Tucumcari-Quay County Chamber of Commerce, said Carole Keith, chamber president at Thursday’s city commission meeting.

Even said that the chamber was going to begin a quarterly meeting program to unify civic groups and governmental agencies. Efforts would also be taken to establish better communications between the groups, he said.

The theme will be “Unity for our Community,” Even said.

As part of its annual request for funds from the city, Even asked for $35,000 to operate the chamber. He also suggested that the city look at other funding sources in addition to the Lodgers Tax revenue, such business license fees which is used for chambers in other cities.
