CRESTVIEW — Joe Unit's official title is Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce membership and program development director.

Unit describes his job a bit more succinctly.

"I'm speaking the gospel of the chamber," he said.

Unit has a new position at the north county's regional chamber of commerce. His primary focus is membership retention and recruitment, chamber Executive Director Wayne Harris said.

"He'll also be responsible for some of our programs and getting people involved and understanding what the chamber is all about," Harris said. "There's this misunderstanding that the chamber is some sort of government entity."

Among his goals, Unit said, is raising membership from its current status and getting as many businesses as possible involved with the chamber.

"And I want to become more involved with the community myself," Unit said.
