Effingham, IL – April 27, 2023, The Effingham County Chamber names Lisa Wilson the Ambassador Chair for 2023, as well as the Ambassador of the Quarter for Q1.

The Effingham County Chamber Ambassadors are a highly visible, prestigious group of volunteers who work for Chamber member organizations, believe in the Chamber’s mission, support their community, and aid for many of the Chamber’s activities and events. As champions of the Chamber, Ambassadors connect and engage with other members, local elected officials, and key business stakeholders while promoting the Chamber and their businesses at various Chamber events.

Lisa Wilson was born in Kentucky but raised in Effingham since she was 9 years old. Lisa is proud to call Effingham her “Hometown” (Go EHS class of 89!).  Lisa is married to Bryan, an Altamont native. She has two children, Mackenzie Ikemire (a Physical Therapist in Kansas City, Missouri) and Bryce Ikemire (an enlisted member of the 82nd Airborne Division of the US Army).

Lisa has been an active member of the Effingham County Chamber for several years with her engagement increasing since her employment with Land of Lincoln Credit Union, where she currently works as a Mortgage Loan Officer in the Effingham market.

Lisa is not only a Chamber Ambassador, but also on the Membership Development Committee. Lisa is a member on other planning committees for the Annual Chamber Golf Outing, EffingHAM-JAM, and the PAVE Housing Action Team. She’s a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Effingham and a member of a local BNI (Business Networking International) chapter, BNI-RISE.
