This is the first time since 2009 that an incumbent President, Lori Walsh, served a second term.

Mike said that 2020 is going to be an interesting year for the Chamber. “With both the Provincial and Municipal Elections this year, the Chamber will be active in ensuring the candidates know the concerns of the business community. The Chamber will also host the Celebrate Success Business Awards in March which is such a great way to celebrate the good news in the Yorkton business community”.

Following a planning session held last week, the Chamber’s Directors developed a list of goals it wants to accomplish for the year. “The business community is facing some challenges but there are signs of an improving economy,” said Stackhouse. “The Chamber will continue to advocate for business to all orders of government to ensure that the community remains strong and vibrant”.

Some of the 2020 priorities include advocating for members; hosting Celebrate and the 22nd Annual Chamber Business Dinner; working with City Council; and keeping the business community informed about opportunities and challenges.

Joining Stackhouse on the Executive are Mike Popowich, Past President; Kristen Zubko, Vice President; & Chairs of the standing committees – Mark Hoddenbagh; Carol Yaholnitsky; Sarah Kowalchuk; and Marty Sveinbjornson.
