Message from the President
Thank you for your continued support of the Kenora and District Chamber of Commerce.
I am pleased to accept the role as President for the next year. Along with the rest of the Board of Directors, we look forward to further supporting and promoting the business interests of our members. We will continue to focus on “our mission is to promote and advocate for a thriving business climate to ensure the growth and prosperity of our members.”
I am also pleased to welcome back the returning members of the Board as well as the new Board members who are volunteering their time to support the goals and objectives of the Chamber in its mission.
And, most of all, of course, we welcome the continued support of our members, without whom we would not exist. As a Chamber, we are a network of local businesses, professionals, entrepreneurs and community groups working together to promote our collective interests within the community and must continue with that goal.
The Chamber conducted, supported or sponsored several successful and worthwhile events this past year.
Going forward, we are planning for an active year again, repeating many of the events of the past year and looking at new opportunities for networking and supporting the business community.
The first major event will be the 33rd Annual Home and Leisure Show, which has been well attended, providing members the opportunity to promote their products and services.
We will continue to collaborate with other business organizations and partners to achieve our mission. As well, we will continue to work with our local and provincial governments to ensure our voices as business owners, entrepreneurs. We will continue to bring forward resolutions through the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce on issues affecting our members.
In the meantime, we welcome your feedback and suggestions on how we can better provide support to our members. Let us know what you would like to see regarding speakers, seminars, and any specific topics of interest to the business community.
We thank you again for your support and participation, and we hope that you will have continued success and prosperity in your business!
Andy Scribilo, President 2020
Kenora and District Chamber of Commerce
