Audet had been the operations manager of the Greater Fort Erie Chamber of Commerce since 2008.
In that capacity, Audet led the board and staff to record levels of membership, increased successful member-related events, promotions, advocacy and fundraising.
While Fort Erie’s sunshine list didn’t see much growth over the last year, it has more than doubled in size since 2008, when only five town staffers were over the 0,000 marker.
