Introducing the Business Leaders of the Saanich Peninsula
Our organization gets things accomplished thanks to the hard work and dedication of a small staff and a large number of volunteers. We hosted our 106th AGM recently and when I heard our incoming President say that out loud, I felt immense appreciation for the community members who believed in this organization and stepped forward to volunteer in support, year after year since 1912.
That we have endured is a clear demonstration of the power of the chamber movement and of this organization in particular. We have changed and grown with the times. And while some of these changes were met with varying levels of approval, ultimately we evolved to serve our members and the community more efficiently and effectively. The signs are overwhelmingly positive for our future. We have a record number of volunteer directors. Our membership retention rate is high. Our events are better-attended than ever before. The mood is overwhelmingly positive around the board room table and in our office.
We have strong leaders at our back and the following community influencers raised their hands to lead us through 2018 and beyond. I am pleased and proud to present our new board of directors and look forward to seeing where they take us!
