Manana Fribley

Membership Engagement Coordinator

I've had the privilege of contributing to esteemed establishments in Columbus, including the Capital Club and New Albany Country Club, gaining valuable experience in club management. My sales background led me to represent renowned hotel brands like Hilton, Marriott, and Hyatt.

My commitment to community service is evident through roles like Past President of the Ohio Valley Chapter of the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) and Board Member of the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce. Currently, I'm honored to serve as the President of the Columbus Rotary Club, where I focus on fostering connections and making a positive impact.

Engagement is a key aspect of my philosophy, demonstrated by my active involvement in the Westerville Chamber, Tri-Village Chamber, and the Columbus Chamber of Commerce. In my current role, I'm excited about helping both existing and new members invest in our Chamber, facilitating business growth, expanding connections, and encouraging community involvement in Worthington.
