7/17/2016

WETUMPKA, Ala. – Cody Williamson, General Manager of Wind Creek Casino and Hotel, Wetumpka, has been honored as the 2016 Volunteer of the Year by the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce at their February 9th Annual Meeting. Williamson was selected because he has been a visible and viable member of the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce for several years. Additionally, he has served as a member of the Board of Directors and as the 2014 Chairman. When presenting the award, Eric Hyde said that Williamson “does not just point at you and say do a job; he gets it done.”

Williamson said of the award, “I am humbled by some of the people who have already been given this award. I am inspired to be like them.” When accepting the award, Williamson expressed his thanks to the team members at Wind Creek Wetumpka, saying “when I volunteer, they volunteer.”

Williamson began his tenure with Wind Creek Hospitality as the Director of Purchasing. Prior to that time, he was an attorney in the Poarch Creek Indians Tribal Legal Office. In his current role as GM of Wind Creek Casino & Hotel, Wetumpka, Williamson oversees operations for the hotel and casino.

Williamson has a finance degree from the University of Alabama as well as a law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law. He is currently a board member for the Wetumpka Chamber of Commerce and the Elmore County Economic Development Authority as well as a member of the Wetumpka Rotary Club, the Montgomery Lion's Club and the Wetumpka Gateway Commission.

Since 1997, the distinguished William F. Sahlie Award has been given to individuals to recognize their outstanding service to the community. The Chamber describes this honor by saying, “Being a truly committed volunteer is not about filling seats and taking votes, it’s about being a supporter and an encourager of the mission and vision of an organization. Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
