BAR HARBOR — A search is underway for the next leader of the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce after current Executive Director Martha Searchfield announced plans to step down at the end of May.
Searchfield joined the chamber staff in April 2016. She and her husband Tim own and operate The Canterbury Cottage bed and breakfast. In a letter to chamber members Monday, she said they plan to focus on rebuilding the business as a full-time, year-round bed and breakfast.
Searchfield has also filed nomination papers to run for one of two open seats on the Bar Harbor Town Council. Other candidates are Matt Hochman, Peter St. Germain and Jeff Dobbs.
