Chamber Of Commerce, Community, Say Goodbye To Liz Sulik

Chamber Of Commerce, Community, Say Goodbye To Liz Sulik


Liz Sulik, the Executive Director of the Rockaway Chamber of Commerce, has led the organization through some of the roughest times in Rockaway’s history, including the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and the crash of American Airlines Flight 587. She is leaving the Chamber, however, to become the Director of External Affairs for the Peninsula Hospital Center later this month. On Friday, the Chamber and many of those from the community who have worked with Sulik over the past years, gave her a surprise going-away party at the Beach Club. Pictured, 100 Precinct Community Affairs Officers Ken Beecher and Pete Rahaniotis hold the “Surprise” banner as Chamber President John Lepore looks on.Liz Sulik, the Executive Director of the Rockaway Chamber of Commerce, has led the organization through some of the roughest times in Rockaway’s history, including the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and the crash of American Airlines Flight 587.
