Dianne Russell completed her term as President of the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce yesterday. She says the two year term was a great experience reviewing events over the year highlighting two events to expand the local Chamber as part of the northern region noting the Look North Committee that she was part of and the northern Chambers meeting in Thompson with the next one in Flin Flon. Russell says in the next year she hopes they continue to build in the areas of connections and collaborations with other Chambers, First Nations and new businesses and cross border initiatives with municipalities and provinces, fishing licences, tourism and economic opportunities. She says we face industry challenges and our communities are ready for new ideas with the best people to face those changes.
Russell encourages more people to join the Chamber noting Chambers are about bringing business and community people together to make change and support the community.
