ALMAGUIN HIGHLANDS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MISSION STATEMENT:
To be the voice for a prosperous business community that fosters pride in our area; and to develop economic growth on behalf of its members and the communities it represents.
Everyone had a great opportunity for networking at last nights meeting at Ha's Restaurant. From 6 to 6:30 we had registration of members and visitors.
At 6:30 Emilio Foffano called the meeting to order and Dave Gray gave out posters and an explanation on the up coming event: ( the poster is on the previous blog) The Nippissing/Parry Sound Business Centre and The South Almaguin Highlands Economic Development Committee will be hosting a "Customer Service in Tourism" Work shop at the Armour, Ryerson and Burk's Falls Arena on Wednesday, October 22nd from 9:00AM until 11:30. All businesses in the Almaguin Highlands are invited to attend.
Willy Hollet then gave the slide show presentation on our Mission statement and Strategic Plan with questions and discussion from the members at the meeting.
Two motions were passed - one to accept the changes to our Mission Statement and the second to accept the strategic plan as presented.
There was a bit of confusion for some members not being on the members list but we will have an up to date list of the Members, contact information and validated voting tickets by the next meeting. Thank you to everyone for their input and Ideas throughout the meeting they were welcomed and much appreciated.
