The board of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce will look much the same as it did last year as the four incumbents were all re-elected.

The election was held at the chamber’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday. Thor Clausen, Connie Denesiuk, Arlene Fenrich and Maged Said, who were all on the board last year, were re-elected. The fifth candidate on the ballot was David Gregory. The four will join Jason Embree and Darin Fair, who are continuing their terms on the board. The only new face on the board is Christine Coletta, who was appointed to fill a vacancy left when Brett DeWitt resigned as he is leaving the community. Coletta was sworn in on March 4.

A total of 39 votes were cast in the chamber election. The chamber represents more than 800 Summerland businesses.
