Share This Article

Five new members were welcomed onto the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, last week, making Brockville’s official ‘voice of business’, a little bit louder. The new directors were welcomed during a brief induction ceremony that capped off the Chamber’s annual general meeting, last Thursday evening. The new board members which include, Jane VanderBaaren of Custom Decor Carpet One Floor and Home, Carrie Hands of Hands Auction Service Ltd., Sophie Robillard-Cushing of Robillard Hearing Centres, Hugh Hammond of Templeman Menninga, and Brent Argue of Lafarge Canada Inc., will join current directors David Keenleyside and Sherri Fournier, who were acclaimed for 2011.  The new members will replace outgoing directors Sueling Ching, Mary-Jean McFall, Dave Shaw, Doug Scott, and Sean Somerville for their contributions. Somerville will stay on as an office accountant for the chamber.
