Vicki Gardner, the longtime leader of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, has left the organization a little earlier than she had originally anticipated.
In May, Gardner announced she would be stepping down from her role as executive director in late August. She held the position since 2002.
In July, she notified the chamber’s board that she could not return to work following a doctor’s orders.
