Chamber will elect three board members

Members of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce will elect or re-elect members to fill three positions on the board of directors.

Members of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce will elect or re-elect members to fill three positions on the board of directors.

The elections, for two-year terms, will be held at the chamber’s annual general meeting next month.

Christine Petkau, executive director of the chamber, said board members must be business licence holders in Summerland.

The role involves representing the entire business community and working on behalf of the more than 700 businesses in Summerland.

All business licence holders in Summerland are members of the chamber.

The Summerland chamber is the third largest chamber of commerce in the region, behind Kelowna and Kamloops, and one of the 25 largest in British Columbia.

While the work is not always highly visible, it is important in creating and maintaining a good environment for business.

“What the chamber does in the way of advocacy is hidden for a lot of people,” she said.

The board meets once a month. In addition, members attend other events and functions on behalf of the chamber.

Those interested in a board position are asked to download a nomination form from the chamber’s website at summerlandchamber.com or pick up a form from the chamber office at 15600 Hwy. 97.

Nominations close Monday, Feb. 29 at 4 p.m.

The board elections will be held at the annual general meeting on Tuesday, March 15 at 5 p.m. at the Summerland Waterfront Resort.
