The St Tammany Chamber of Commerce’s board members and ambassadors came out in force on June 15, 2023, to celebrate the relocated satellite office of the chamber now located in the parish’s Towers Administrative Building on Old Spanish Trail in Slidell. Also joining the celebration were representatives from government agencies located in the building, and representatives of both parish and Slidell city governments.

The St. Tammany Chamber’s membership is comprised of businesses from across the entire parish: 69% Covington/Mandeville, 20% Slidell, and 11% other cities.

Since November 2019, Slidell business memberships has grown by 17 percent, chamber board representation from Slidell grew by 25% and staff has increased to seven employees. Overall chamber membership continues to grow.

Julie Paretti, bookkeeper and administrative assistant, and Stephanie Loman, director of events and public policy, joined the staff. Both are Slidell residents and will have hours in both the Covington and Slidell offices.

“Our staff and board agree this location offers convenience for our committee and board members meeting in Slidell with access to the building’s conference room—and it’s great view—located just across the hall from our sixth-floor office,” said St. Tammany Chamber President and CEO Lacey Osborne.
