Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce chose some new faces and some old reliables to its board during the organization’s annual general meeting on Monday, Mar. 4.

Jeff Lamond was elected by acclamation to another year as president.

Treasurer is once again Joanne Ovenden, and Anne Krawec will serve another term as secretary.

Newcomer Cindy Wilgosh joined Cheryl Thomas as a two-year director.

Ron and Shauna Plamondon, also new to the board, joined Ted Richardson as one year directors.

The position of vice-president, as well as two directorships with two-year terms, remained unfilled.

The past year saw progress by the Chamber on a number of fronts, said president Jeff Lamond in his report.

A map board is to be erected on the meridian between Brookfield Mall and the Interior Whitewater building, he said.

The Chamber would like to set on up near the Infocenter but a location on Eden Road was rejected by Highways.

In her report, Secretary Anne Krawec congratulated Lamond for bringing in a new way of thinking during his term as president.

Membership in the Chamber is about the same as the previous year, she said.

The Citizen of the Year banquet and a luncheon held during a visit by Premier Christy Clark were successes, Krawec said.


The secretary also noted that the Chamber had hired Hettie Buck as manager during the year. Buck had done a good job in the position, she said.
