Volunteer of the Month

August 2016


Sandpoint – At the Greater Chamber of Commerce, our volunteers are essential to the success of our Chamber.  Without the hard work and dedication of everyone, the Chamber could not accomplish all that we do.  With that in mind, we want to thank those willing to go above and beyond to help our programs and events be successful.  The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors would like to give a special appreciation to Mack Deibel for his active participation in the Chamber events and his commitment to make our community a better place to live and work.

Community service was engrained in him at a young age.  “I volunteered a lot as a young person and have been honored to make a difference since joining the Greater Sandpoint Community,” said Mack.  He enjoys volunteering with the Chamber events and supporting tourism in our area.  From slicing fruit and baked goods at the Scenic Half marathon, contributing to local non-profits by holding fundraisers at MickDuff’s Beer Hall to facilitating the Sandpoint Beerfest, anything to help add vitality to our community is more than a worthy cause.  With a degree in Marketing and Strategic Communications, Mack has offered his services and expertise to various local non-profits for writing, marketing and social media in the past as well.

“Mack is a very gifted individual with the skills to do anything,” said The Chamber President & CEO Kate McAlister, “His marketing and communication talent comes through, not only in his previous work here at the Chamber, but certainly in his current position with MickDuff’s.  He has a great passion for Sandpoint and it shows.”  In fact, Mack was the primary force behind the tremendous success of the Chamber’s 3rd Annual Sandpoint Beerfest in early July.

You will see Mack serving and making beer regularly at MickDuff’s Brewery.   He is passionate about beer making, and the passion became his work.  Plus, he makes awesome beer!    He is more than happy to share his philosophy of beer making and giving tips to microbrew enthusiasts.  When not working, Mack enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing at Schweitzer, wakesurfing on the lake and exploring the beautiful North Idaho.

Please join the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce in congratulating Mack Deibel honored as the Volunteer of the Month and thanking him for all of his contributions to our community.  His hard work has done a lot for so many causes in our community.  Thank you Mack!
