COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- After a rigorous search, the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce has appointed its next executive director. 

The chamber has named Tara Burke, of Elmira, as the person to take over for outgoing Matt Hazzard.

They say she gained a wealth of experience and completed many initiatives as the Chemung Chamber's director of communications and program development. 

"I'm very excited about and honored by this opportunity to work with the Cooperstown business community," said Burke in a statement. "I have always loved the area, and of course I sincerely believe in the mission of the Chamber and its ability to have a multi-faceted positive impact on the community as a whole. I'm looking forward to getting to know the business community members, and working to meet their needs to help them continue to grow and succeed."

Burke will be moving to the area with her husband, Jake, and daughter, Zoey.
