Douglas R. Stage, Elected President of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce

Douglas R. Stage was elected President of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce in December, 2014. As such he has come to the organization with some new zeal. One of his initiatives is to bring back the educational program section of the Chamber. Another initiative is to commence the mentoring program where members of the Board of Directors take new members under their wing to help mentor them in the ins and outs of the Chamber of Commerce. The Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce is the second biggest chamber in Orange County, second only to the Orange County wide Chamber of Commerce.

Douglas hopes to enhance the character of Warwick and to continue the great strides made by former administrations.

Catherine graduated with a BA in Psychology and is looking forward to pursuing a degree in law, perhaps to return to the family firm in Warwick.
