Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce President Tom Aposporos will step down from his role by the end of the year.
The Chamber announced Aposporos’ resignation in a news release Monday afternoon.
“The board understood from the outset that Tom would not be here forever,” said Chamber board of directors Chair Jimmy Seaton, of Longboat Limousine and Liquid Limousine Charters, in the release, adding that Aposporos has also expressed willingness to continue to work for the Chamber part time, managing special projects or representing the Chamber in public or governmental affairs.
Aposporos, a real-estate broker for J Wood Realty, said that he will have more time to devote to business following his resignation. But the Anna Maria resident is also considering a run for the Anna Maria City Commission and will have to decide Oct. 31 whether he wants to pursue a seat.
The board plans to develop a succession plan over the next 30 days.
