Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dan Koenig submitted his resignation Friday effective July 5.

The chamber board will begin to discuss Koenig’s replacement im­mediately, according to a news re­lease. The chamber has more than 800 dues-paying members. 

“I’ve been eyeing a new op­portunity and the timing is right,” Koenig said in a release. “There are a lot of good things happening in Council Bluffs, and I tried my best to build upon those successes.”

Don Kohler, the chamber board chairman and vice presi­dent of marketing and public relations at Iowa Western Community College, said Koenig played a key leadership role in key initiatives.
