Pam Matt is definitely a two faced person. All of you who think she's trying to help the area are due for a rude awakening.

Working in the office for just a temporary time I learned fast how unorganized, mean and unprofessional she is.

She pretends to be a team player, but she really only cares about what the board and the members think of her.

She let me go for reasons I don't understand and acted really weird as if she had something personal she didn't like about me. I literally worked there for less than a day.

I would've understood if there was something I did wrong. But nothing, no explanation at all.

In my opinion she's going to destroy the MV Chamber. And isn't going to be doing anything to really help the community. She only wants to help herself.

While I was there I watched her scream at other employees. Acting childish and out of control.

First I was disappointed with the situation but with time to think it out I have decided I'm lucky to be out of her tourcher chamber.

Business's and community residents of The Mohawk Valley take warning. Pam Matt is not good for business.

You got fired. Deal with it. If she's really as bad as you say everyone will see soon enough.

I was interested in making my business a member. Pam Matt could not clearly tell me benefits of the membership. Then she started making me feel like my business wasn't good enough.

I just want to help people with home repairs. Get the name out there. I not impressed with her conducting.

I've known Pam Matt a long time, and she is definitely 2 faced. Doesn't have a handle on what she's doing and very abrasive to the people that work for/with her.

Let's get real here. The chamber does very little to help local businesses. They collect dues for cocktail parties

I used to go to the Choo Choo for Charity. But I think they don't do it for a charity anymore and all the funds raised profit the Chamber.

Does anyone know if this is true?

What does the chamber do for businesses? I'm just starting out. Can they help me? How?

Does anyone have a real opinion to share, good or bad?
U sure

I stopped going to Chamber business afterhours some time ago partially because of the way the brewery refused to give me the opportunity to bid on a service they utilize. It was their treatment of me that I found upsetting. The final straw was when I attended one of these events and felt I was being extorted into drinking one of their products of which I'm not a fan of. Obviously, it all makes sense now. I applaud attempts to serve local products, but out of town brewers also utilize local distributors. So, in essence, I'm not going to support a self-serving monopoly.

I've only known Pam for a short while and find her to be an excellent person. While my business is not currently a member of the Chamber; I think she's doing an fantastic job managing with our MV Chamber.
You simply were fired and are bitter; do yourself a favor and move on. You shouldn't take your recent termination so personally. There may have just been personality conflicts.

What benchmarks would one use to grade someone like her in terms of effectiveness?

I didn't join the chamber when she asked me about it and the next time I saw her she was rude to me. I don't think I'll ever join because of this.

The Choo Choo
Simple question Why would one not for profit help another when the chamber could also use the money

The Choo Choo doesn't benefit a Charity? Please tell me this is a lie.

Is Pam Matt the funeral Matt or the brewery Matt?
Never heard of her? Out if the loop.

My business is a Chamber member and I think she's very energetic about her job. At least someone in this city is positive. If you don't like her, don't deal with her. Simple enough. But if you were fired, that says more about your character and competence than it does Ms. Matt's.
