Timmins – The last of the votes have been counted, and the members of the Timmins
Chamber of Commerce have officially elected six businesspeople to represent them at
the heart of city’s largest business organization.
Coming from a range of business sectors and backgrounds, these six individuals will
now sit on the Chamber’s 21-member board, and will help provide direction and
guidance to its advocacy and member service efforts through the coming Chamber year.
They will be officially sworn in during the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting, due to be
held at the Timmins Days Inn on Sept. 19.
“Once again, there is a terrific amount of expertise and experience at the core of this
year’s Board of Directors, and I’m more than pleased to be working alongside them,”
said Art Pultz, incoming president for the 2012-2013 Chamber year.
“This is a truly motivated and passionate group, and Chamber members should rest
assured that their board representatives will work hard over the coming year to ensure
that Timmins is a great place to do business.”
The new additions to the Board include Ginette Nakashoji, partner at Fuller Jenks
Landau; Christine Bender, campus manager, Northern College; Jason Perratt, owner,
Logikal Code; Andrea Griener, partner, Clearlogic Consulting Professionals; and Roland
Magnan, director of operations – Ontario and Quebec, Eastlink.
Having served on the board last year, Timmins Family YMCA Executive Director Wayne
Bozzer was also elected to return on the 2012-13 board.
Electronic and print ballots were sent out to each of the Chamber’s 1,320 eligible voting
members, who had one month to place their vote for their board representation. Each
board member serves a two-year term, after which they can apply for re-election, for a
maximum of three terms.
