Happy New Year!

I’m pleased and honoured to serve as President of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce for a second year.

I’ve been on the Board since 2016, so this is the first year of my third two-year term. What I’ve learned over my time so far is that we have some excellent dedicated business leaders in our city who are willing to work hard to make this the best business environment possible.

We will always be faced with challenges, including an unnecessary carbon tax which really stifles our economy. However, we will continue to advocate on behalf of the business community and ensure Yorkton is ‘open for business’ because the healthier the city can be on the commercial level, the less of an impact these punishing levies will have on us.

2020 will be busy for the Chamber with two elections on the horizon (provincial and municipal). Be looking for our Talking Points document later this year as it’s something that helped drum up incredible interest from candidates and voters during the last City of Yorkton election.

We will continue to build on our relationship with City Council – holding them accountable and working to better understand one another as we work towards common goals of making our city as attractive as possible. Our relationship with the City continues to strengthen and that gives us a lot of credibility when we need to advocate on behalf of our members.

If you have any concerns, remember the Yorkton Chamber Directors are here for you. You have invested in your business by becoming a member of the Yorkton Chamber. Your membership dues allow for you to have an added voice. It’s our duty to help represent you and if you aren’t sure if the Chamber can help, you should still ask. Increasing awareness about the role of the Chamber for our members continues to be a priority. Please feel free to reach out to any of us. We have a very strong group of Directors and I’m excited to work with each of them and we, as a collective group, look forward to interacting with our members in 2020.
