The Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce held their annual general meeting yesterday accepting a revised slate of officers. No one stepped forward to be President so that position remains open. Two former Presidents Dianne Russell and Korey Eastman agreed to serve as co-Vice-Presidents sharing the Presidents job until that position is filled. Past President is Karen MacKinnon, Secretary Becky Cianflone, Treasurer Dave Kendall and there are six Directors. The Chamber will also review the number of meetings they hold with possibly more committee meetings.
Some of the highlights reported from the past year include helping to host the Manitoba Chamber’s Economic Development tour Oct 9th and 10th, their major fund raiser again was their radio auction raising 7 thousand dollars, the Flin Flon map placemat project, hosting an all candidates provincial election forum, taking part in the 2018 Infusion Conference, the Trout Festival community barbeque with the City and Huday and outreach gatherings with the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation. Membership was reported to be down slightly to 86 members.
