Thank you to everyone who participated in our Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce 2021 Annual General Meeting, Awards and Chair Salute.
Our Chamber Members welcomed a new executive and elected five Members to the Board of Directors for 2022.
Assuming the role of Chair is Tertius Genis. Also acclaimed from the nominating committee were Cindy Park as First Vice-Chair and Cord Spero as Second Vice-Chair. Larry Gibson will remain on the Executive as Past Chair.
One spot on the Board, left vacant by retiring Directors, has been filled by Laura LaValley. The remaining positions went to returning Directors: Jon Anderson, Jason Howrish, Pamela Nordin and Karci Wallan who were successful in seeking their second terms on the Board.
Those elected will join existing Directors: Ken Loudon, Jason Petrone, Lori Pollock and Barry Yaehne on the 2022 Chamber Board.
The Chamber would also like to recognize and thank retiring Board Members Dan Wong and Lisa Hall.
