Ponte Vedra Beach Division hosts open house


Local members of the business community had an opportunity to meet the new director of the Ponte Vedra Beach Division of the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce recently, when the chamber hosted an open house at the Ponte Vedra office on Solana Road.

New Director Lin Jones greeted more than 40 business leaders at the event and shared with them some of her plans for continuing the chamber’s efforts to strengthen and support the Ponte Vedra Beach business community.

“I’m working to create a balance between maintaining what’s familiar about the division and introducing some new things,” Jones said.

Jones brings to her new role extensive experience in tourism and marketing, having worked at several convention and visitors bureaus and served in leadership roles at a number of tourism organizations in Indiana, including as director of Tour Indiana. She learned about the opportunity to lead the Ponte Vedra Beaches Division after relocating to Florida.

“I was familiar with the Jacksonville and St. Augustine area,” Jones said, “so when I learned about the opportunity I just thought it was the perfect location.”
