Chamber congratulates new city council

Chamber's November edition of Chamber Chatter welcomes new members and congratulates new city council.

Welcome to our new members:  Jag and Maverick Trucking Inc. and Wyatt Marketing Inc.

Congratulations to our new 2015 president Angela Sommer and our board.

Work will start in December to review the strategic plan and identifying our priorities.

Our year end is Nov. 30 and the 2015 membership dues and decals will be sent out Dec. 1.

The member to member program is continuing in 2015. There are no fees to participate so if you are interested    contact the chamber office at 250-392-5025.

Congratulations to the new city council, we look forward to working with you all. We look forward to hearing more on the referendum that 68 per cent of voters gave a “yes” for the borrowing bylaw to go ahead.

We invite members and guests to attend our meeting and luncheon on Nov. 27 from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Signal Point Restaurant. We will be having the installation of officers with mayor Kerry Cook officiating.

Our speaker is Tony Gugliotta senior vice-president, business development for YVR Airport.  His focus is on three major projects: Automated Passport Control, the Designer Outlet Centre and Land Management.

Chamber meetings provide a great opportunity to meet other members and share what’s going on in Williams Lake and area.  Members can enter the Chamber Chatter draw sponsored by the Williams Lake Tribune and Vista radio; you could win the business profile for the next Chamber Chatter. We ask that you help us and the restaurant by providing your RSVP by Tuesday; call 250-392-5025 or e-mail visitors@telus.net to reserve your seat.
