YORKTON - The Board of Directors of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce elected its 2022 Executive at a meeting of the Board earlier this morning.
Marty Sveinbjornson was acclaimed as President for 2022, having served in that capacity in 2021.
Sveinbjornson is looking forward to his second term as President.
“I believe 2022 will bring new opportunities to both the business community and the Chamber,” he said. “Advocating for our business community constituted a great deal of the Board’s work in 2021 and I expect this Board will continue to strive to ensure our business community is strong and vibrant.”
A planning session was held earlier in the month at which the Chamber Directors developed a list of goals it wants to accomplish for the year. “While the business community has faced and continues to face challenges due to the pandemic, many businesses have found the ability to adapt,” said Sveinbjornson. “The Chamber will be there to support our business community.”
One of the first orders of business will be for the various standing committees to meet and review the past year. Several Directors have already committed to meeting with Hon. Jeremy Harrison, Minister of Labour, to discuss the labour shortage in the area.
Joining Sveinbjornson on the Executive are Mike Stackhouse, Past President; Sunil Shah, Vice President; & Chairs of the standing committees – Meghan Lindgren; Annelle Bodnarik; CV Sastry; and Mike Stackhouse.
The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce is “the voice of business in Yorkton” and represents over 450 members.
