The Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce is taking on the work of the new Chamber year head on, with recently installed President Keith Lambourne introducing the new Committee Chairs for 2016-17 this week.

At Wednesday's Chamber meeting Chamber members heard of the work involved for eight areas and who will be leading the Committees where the Chamber will focus its attention on in the year ahead.

The list includes:

Rising Stars -- Dave McKeever
Gala -- Sharon Bahm
Business Excellence Awards -- Herb Pond
Finance -- Sharon Rothwell
Policy -- Andrew Darby
Communications -- Chris Armstrong

President Lambourne is taking charge of two committees as well, offering his services as the Chair of the Member Initiatives Committee and Golf Scramble Committee

Committee meetings will be published both through the Chamber's online calendar and in the Chamber of Commerce newsletter. Chamber members can contact the Chair of any committees that are of interest to them to participate through the year ahead.

It was also announced on Wednesday that newly elected director Michelle Bryant-Gravelle has already accepted a new challenge with the Chamber, signing to the role of Second Vice President of the local business organization.

Chamber members also received an update  about next weeks Chamber Luncheon, an event offers up some interesting lunch time discussion, as the Chamber hosts a Panel Discussion on how to diversify your business offerings to meet the needs of a changing market.

Ms. Melissa Case from Bechtel is the guest speaker providing an overview of how the community of Gladstone, Australia met the challenge of major project development.

She will then join Blair Mirau, Robert Stromdahl and Jeissca Laberge as part of the panel discussion portion of the May 18th luncheon.

Next weeks luncheon takes place at the BC Room in the Crest Hotel from 11:45 AM to 1 PM.
