The chamber says Braatz contacted them about how she was treated at the chamber but would not disclose the nature of the complaint.

In a statement, Interim President Kathleen Harrington said she is confident knowing those who wanted to be heard were listened to and their input was taken seriously.

The chamber board of directors heard a verbal report of the investigation. However, the chamber is not giving out those findings to the public.

In a statement, Harrington said due to legal reasons and to assure the confidentiality of staff and others -- a verbal report was given.

What we do know is that the outside investigator interviewed numerous current and past employees of the chamber.

Harrington writing, "The board provided input and thoughts on the report and i will work with the board of directors, chamber staff and members to utilize the information to continue to build the best workplace culture for the chamber."

A spokesperson for the chamber declined to comment.  ABC 6 News also reached out to Braatz but have not heard back.
