Hello 2018! We have begun this year with a new President, Karen MacKinnon, a new President-Elect, Becky Cianflone, and a new Vice-President, Twyla Storey. Welcome! It's nice to see so many strong women in our community and on our Executive! As we get into the swing of things, our Economic Development Committee chaired by Kory Eastman is already busy with some definite goals in mind to enhance our district and tackle some important issues. Our Special Events Committee kicked things off with a Capturing Christmas contest sponsored by Manitoba Hydro. Our Membership Committee is busy with membership renewals and recruitment. The Fund-Raising Committee has some lofty goals in mind this year and will be meeting soon to get creative! The Main Street Committee started this new fiscal year with Moonlight Madness, featuring not only Main Street businesses but Home Businesses as well. The Speakers Committee has some great speakers planned for the year - these General meetings are open to everyone and anyone. If you missed them, you can catch-up by clicking on the Photo Journal menu link. And rounding things off, the Advisory Committee has met to create a new budget for the year. The Chamber is stronger than ever with many committed members, and has some exciting directions to build on for 2018. I predict we will have a very productive and successful year!
