This year there were five nominees received from within the Quinte West Business Community so for the first time in many years there was no election needed. “We always operate with a full board,” says Chamber manager Suzanne Andrews. “There is a definite willingness from within the business community to get involved at the board level to ensure the chamber continues to represent the Quinte West business community.”
