Merrimack Chamber honors 25-year member Mel Tye

MERRIMACK – The Merrimack Chamber of Commerce recently celebrated Mel Tye’s 25th year of membership during their November Networking Before 9 meeting. Mel, owner of Tye’s Top Tour & Travel, has been an active member in the Merrimack Chamber of Commerce and is credited with continually working to bring commerce to Merrimack.

"Mel embodies the spirit of the chamber, and is always looking for ways to give back to the business community", said Dawn Shepherd, president of the Merrimack Chamber of Commerce.

This fall, Mel booked 51 tours from September to November, bringing more than $150,000 of business into Merrimack’s hotels and restaurants. When asked why he feels the Chamber of Commerce is an important part of his business plan, Mel said, "It’s so important to keep the business local! The people I network with the most, are the people I do business with the most."
