New faces, new ideas for Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce board

'I'm looking forward to it,' said chamber board chair Oura Giakoumakis

Three new members were appointed to the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce board at the organization’s AGM on Nov. 19.

Coun. Dave Willie officiated over the swearing-in ceremony for Dave Nellist of Raymond James Ltd. and Katherine Wilk of ReMAX Anchor Realty, who joined the board as directors.

The third new board member Kelly Bleau of BMO Bank of Montreal was not in attendance.

According to current QBCC chair Oura Giakoumakis, there was no requirement to hold an election since there were no additional nominations this year.

As such, the other board members were elected by acclamation. Giakoumakis will return in 2015, as will Jim Lynch, Rusty Joerin, Julie Chambers, Marc LaCouvee, Geoff Ball and Michelle Generoux.

John Briuolo and Dave Bryan have completed their terms on the board.

“I’m looking forward to it,” said Giakoumakis of the new board. “I think there will be lots of new ideas.”

She also said that the fact that the new board contains representatives for businesses in and out of the downtown core will “make a difference.”

The roles and executive positions for the incoming board will be confirmed at its first meeting on Dec. 11.
