The Farmington Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced the addition of Candy Zarcone to the chamber staff.
Zarcone began her part-time position on Aug. 2 as public relations coordinator and brings years of non-profit experience to the position.
“Candy has been a long-time supporter and member of the chamber and we are thrilled to add her to our already dynamic staff,” said Dick Womack, president/CEO of the Farmington Chamber.
Zarcone has been a part of the Farmington community since 2007 and has been active in the Farmington Regional Chamber for many years, consistently attending and assisting various events and activities. Her expertise in non-profit organizations includes promotion and networking for various agencies through both volunteerism and employment.

Presently, Zarcone serves on the board of directors for Serenity HospiceCare, Visions of Hope Training Program, Friends In Action Clubhouse and the St. Francois County Mental Health Board. In 2015, Zarcone received the KFMO/B104 Super Service award at the Farmington Regional Chamber Awards of Excellence ceremony for her work within the community.
In addition to her chamber duties, Zarcone continues to work part-time at LIFE Center for Independent Living as a Certified Work Incentive counselor, assisting individuals receiving disability benefits to better understand work income regulations. “I’m blessed to have the opportunity to pursue my passion for non-profit work in this region and joining the chamber staff will allow me to better serve this wonderful community which has so warmly embraced me and my family,” said Zarcone.
Prior to moving to Farmington, Zarcone was a leader for 14 years at the regional and national levels for Protestant Women of the Chapel, an Armed Forces chaplain-sponsored ministry to military wives.
