Cranbrook chamber installs new executivePosted: January 19, 2012

City of Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski swore in the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce’s new president, executive and directors today (Jan. 18) during a luncheon meeting at the Heritage Inn.

About 170 chamber members watched as Lana Kirk (JCI Kootenay) was sworn in as president, and then as the entire new executive and board of directors were also sworn in by Stetski.

“I can tell you, these people have a real heart for Cranbrook,” Stetski said.

New past president Sean Campbell said his two years as chamber president were gratifying and punctuated by two high water mark moments: the chamber celebrating its 100th birthday in 2010 and being named B.C.’s Chamber of the Year in 2011.

“That’s a very prestigious award,” Campbell said.

Kirk said the chamber continues moving forward on a strong footing, citing the popularity of the monthly luncheon meetings as an example, with an average attendance of 177 members over the past 12 meetings, including five complete sell outs. In addition, the chamber’s two visitor information centres experienced record numbers of visitors last year.

“I am looking forward to this year,” she said.

Joining Kirk on the chamber executive are Mike Adams (Taylor Adams, chartered accountants) as vice president, Dave Butler (Canadian Mountain Holidays) as second vice-president, Jeanette Sissons (CIBC) as treasurer and Campbell as past president.

Serving as directors for 2012 are: Jim Benson (Scotia Bank), Allyson Blake (St. Eugene Resort & Casino), Chris Botterill (Genex Marketing), Tristen Chernove (Canadian Rockies International Airport), Ryan Gibbard (McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd.), Ted Lauristen (Alpine Toyota), Karla Shalley (Playpen Pet Boarding and Grooming), Connor Stewart (Staples), David Struthers (Interior Reforestation Co. Ltd.) and Tracey Whiting (College of the Rockies).
