Andrea Owensby has resigned as president of the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce to become director of hospitality at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.

She will begin her new position July 1. She had been with the Hartselle chamber for a year.

Grant McKelvey, chairman of the board of the HACC, said the board won't rush to find a suitable replacement.

"We will work hard to find the right person, but it is not a race to find someone," he said. 

The chamber's 10th annual Cotton Pickin' BBQ Cook-off will be held July 26-27 as planned, McKelvey said.
