Chamber adopts new bylaws at annual meeting on March 26

The Summerland Chamber of Commerce held its annual general meeting and election of officers on March 26..

Members present also adopted a new set of bylaws for the organization.

Executive director David Hull said the new bylaws were needed.

“The previous bylaws from 2010 were so out of date and not in compliance that amendments were not practical so we started from scratch and developed new bylaws,” he said.

Major changes to the bylaws saw the elimination of the past president position and implementation of term limits for board members. The balance of the new sections was to ensure compliance with Industry Canada requirements and modern communication options for meetings.

A slate of candidates for the 2019 to 2020 board was presented for consideration by the membership. The recommendations of the Nominating Committee were unanimously accepted.

Hull said the two vacancies in the report can be filled by the board as per the bylaws.

“The treasurer position has a bit of specific expertise required and the director position, with one year remaining, was vacated after the nominations were closed,” he said

The board was sworn in by Summerland Mayor Toni Boot.

President Deborah Moore of Remax Orchard Country will serve as president, while Ron Kubek of Lightning Rock Winery will be vice-president. A treasurer will be appointed.

Directors sworn in for a two-year term were Luke Johnson of Open Skies Media and Hanan Campbell of Avery Law Offices,

A director will be appointed to fill a vacated two-year term, ending March 30, 2020.

Completing a term as director ending March 31. 2020 is Jason Goy of Phalanx Construction.
