Chamber Transitions to Wilkins as Director

 

Adrienne Wilkins

The Headland Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors announced this week that its new Executive Director is Adrienne Wilkins. Mrs. Wilkins has been a volunteer for the Chamber for two years and has been assisting the Chamber by leveraging their social media presence. Mrs. Wilkins has a degree in Business Administration and Marketing from Louisiana State University and more than ten years in sales and business development. She has served as the President of Headland Main Street and was instrumental in helping Headland become a Main Street Designated city.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Adrienne for quite some time. We are glad to have her on board and serving Headland with our Chamber. Her experience will be an asset to the members of the Headland Area Chamber of Commerce,” said Pete Crews, Board of Directors President. “We appreciate the years of service Rhonda Harrison has served our Chamber and appreciate all she is doing during this transition.”

The Sounds of Safety

 

EBS meeting

 

You may find yourself strolling to the beat of music on the Square in our Downtown. Thanks to Chief Mark Jones and his continued efforts to make our city safer, the city now has a new emergency broadcast system Downtown. Chief Jones secured a grant from the EMA to cover the cost of the system. Headland Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Rhonda Harrison, worked with Chief Jones on this project. When the system is not in use to broadcast emergency information, the speakers will be playing music for Downtown visitors to enjoy.

Headland has made the Safewise list of Safest Cities in Alabama. This year we have placed near the top at #3!

Thanks to everyone who works to keep our city safe including, but not limited to Headland Police Department Chief Mark D. Jones, the Henry County Sheriff's Department and Henry County E911.

According to Safewise.com

  • 90% of the safest cities limited violent crime to less than two incidents per 1,000 people.
  • Alabama’s statewide property crime rate is 39.37 incidents per 1,000 people, compared to just 27.11 nationwide.
  • Property crime ranges from 32 incidents to 1,280 among the cities on our list, with nearly 50% reporting more than 500 property crimes.
  • Property crime is the biggest safety concern in Alabama, according to our State of Safety study.
  • 16% of Alabama respondents experienced a property crime in the past year—which is the same as the national average.
  • Having a home break-in was cited as the top property crime concern, with 61% worried about a break-in when they’re not at home and 60% scared of a break-in when they’re at home asleep.
