The Salt Spring Chamber AGM was held on Wednesday, June 6th from 5:30 to 6:30. We reviewed the past year’s activities and events, provided a financial report and conducted an election of Directors for 2018/19. A Member Mixer followed with great networking, food and a cash bar.
Attendees heard from Committee Chairs and learned more about the “Experience the Southern Gulf Islands” initiative. The Finances Chair reviewed the financial report and shared information on the Chamber’s funding position.
