Deb Slechta

Deb Slechta

Moab Chamber Secretary

Deb’s motto is, “Let’s keep the money in Moab, and if we can’t, then let’s keep it in the state!”  Having Moab’s economy consistent and flowing is a main focal point for Deb.  Business training with its many aspects, apprenticeships, and 12-month employment are some of the key issues that Deb wishes to see put into practice for our small business community.  A business truth that has always rung true is that you cannot be profitable or productive to your fullest extent if you do not 100% embrace what you are selling, or making, or doing.  One must know completely the ins and outs of a business for its success. The Moab Chamber of Commerce with its many resources is the vehicle to get you to the ultimate level of not just ‘getting by’ but attaining the level of success you personally wish to gain from your business.
