Sales Manager, Aspen Chamber Resort Association
Change-Making 101: When Cluley joined the chamber, Aspen hadn’t previously explored the faith-based market. “There is a big misconception Aspen is for celebrities and the super-rich, but we have secret, great value times,” she says. “We’re in such inspirational surroundings; I am working to make it the perfect fit for smaller faith-based retreats.”
