Board of Advisor Spotlight: Big Cypress Lodge

The following is a feature in the Memphis Crossroads Magazine. Click here to view the issue in its entirety.

In each issue of Memphis Crossroads, we highlight a Board of Advisor level member, showcasing their important role in the Chamber as well as the business community. Lana McDonald, Hotel Manager for the Big Cypress Lodge, shares why the new hotel is part of the Chamber as well as some benefits of doing business in Memphis.
Why did you join the Chamber?
In 2006 I moved to Memphis from a small town in Alabama. Initially I wasn’t sure if I would live here permanently. Memphis has been so good to me, and 10 years later, I wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else. My career has excelled quickly, which I attribute to leaders believing in me without years of experience under my belt. Bass Pro Shops has provided me the opportunity to manage, one of the most unique hotels in the world, Big Cypress Lodge. I love our city! Naturally, it is fitting that I am a member of the Chamber, invested in my community. The Chamber allows me the resources to network with a variety of business leaders throughout the city. I enjoy representing Bass Pro Shops and Big Cypress Lodge while building relationships.  We all have a common goal – Make Memphis better.
What are the benefits of doing business in Memphis?
There are many benefits to doing business in Memphis.  At Big Cypress Lodge we not only take pride in telling people about our hotel, but we’re also dedicated to promoting a positive image of our great city. My team and I sell and promote Memphis on a daily basis.  Located in the Mid-South, Memphis has so much to offer from rich history and culture, talented arts and entertainment, fabulous dining options, and enjoyable weather.  With recent developments, especially the addition of Bass Pro Shops and Big Cypress Lodge, it is obvious that many others are taking advantage of the benefits of doing business in Memphis.
