Board Elections and Appointments, Chamber AGM November 24, 2022
As part of our proceedings at the Annual General Meeting on Thursday, November 24, our members elect candidates to join our Board of Directors.
Incorporated under Canada’s Boards of Trade Act, the Chamber could not exist without dedicated and passionate volunteers, giving their time and expertise to serve on our Board of Directors. For more than half a century, scores of local business leaders, non-profit executives, and community champions have skillfully guided our organization to grow and thrive. The board is responsible for strategic, governance, and fiduciary leadership, oversees the Chief Executive Officer, and is accountable to our members.
Past Chairs of our Board of Directors join our Board of Governors, who remain involved and connected with the Chamber in meaningful ways. This year, we welcome Ryan Whittle to this esteemed group. Our sincere thanks as well to Governor Mary Vellani, stepping down from the Board of Directors, having served as immediate Past Chair for 2021-22. We also thank outgoing board members Kelso Kennedy, Ryan Oake, and Belen Welch.
The Board consists of the Chair, Vice-Chair and 10 Directors. In addition, the immediate Past Chair, Chief Executive Officer and the Treasurer of the Chamber are ex-officio members of the Board.
