Question: Is Hayden Chamber Beyond Repair?

Item: Who’s the boss? Hayden chamber debates leadership, rules of order, possible dissolution/Rick Thomas, Coeur d’Alene Press

More info: “The first order of business of Geri Delange at Tuesday’s meeting of the Hayden Chamber of Commerce was to bar The Press from the proceedings. When she was advised the newspaper had been invited by several board members, she agreed to take it to a vote. That never made it to the table, and neither did several other motions by board members during the course of a 90-minute session that included charges and countercharges, conspiracies and counterconspiracies, threats of suits and countersuits and borderline violence.”

DFO: I rarely pay attention to chamber of commerce news. But I love a train wreck, especially when community leaders act like 2-year-olds. Hence, this item.

Question: What can be done to save the Hayden Chamber of Commerce?
