Bob Malm, Elgin Development Group Director has announced his retirement from the Elgin Area Chamber, and you are invited to his retirement reception on Tuesday, August 27 from 4 to 7PM at Bennigan?s. He joined the Elgin Area Chamber in 2004 as director of the chamber?s Challenge 21 Campaign, a public/private partnership committed to creating a more vibrant, diverse and prosperous community. The success of the campaign led to the Elgin Development Group, a division of the Elgin Area Chamber, delivering economic development services to the community through a Purchase of Service Agreement with the City of Elgin. Following four years as a U.S. Naval Officer during the Vietnam War, Malm started his career as an intern in the Elgin city manager?s office in the late 1960?s after receiving a master?s degree from NIU in public administration. He worked his way up to assistant city manager and chief executive officer until retiring in 1998. During that time, he served as interim city manager on three separate occasions. A recipient of the United Way of Elgin Willis A. Reed Humanitarian Award, Bob is active with the Shepard of the Prairie Lutheran Church, Citizens for Council-Manager Government, Elgin Area Leadership Academy and has served as head of several local civic organizations.
