    We're pleased to share that the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce has named Dillon Goodson as our new Executive Director. In this role, he will be responsible for providing vision, direction, and leadership to the Lakeview Chamber as well as its partners, Special Service Area 27 (SSA 27) and Friends of Lakeview. Dillon has spent the past four years serving as the organization's Community Development Director, where he oversaw the annual work plan of SSA 27 and led our work to enhance public streets and spaces, create memorable experiences, and promote Lakeview and its businesses. For the past decade, he has worked in community and economic development in Chicago, where he has helped improve neighborhoods like the Loop and Lakeview with initiatives that create stronger connections between people and the places they share.

    As part of Dillon’s transition, the Lakeview Chamber has also named Nicole McLellan as Community Development Manager, where she'll assume responsibility for managing SSA 27 and executing its annual work plan. Nicole comes to the Lakeview Chamber with more than four years of experience working in community engagement, event programming, and development for nonprofit organizations. Prior to joining the chamber in 2019, Nicole led global expansion and engagement at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, working with stakeholders and other decision-makers around the world to build organizational presence in new regions. She holds a B.A. in International Relations & Global Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and a M.S. in International Public Service from DePaul University.
