Chamber looking for new director

The Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce is looking to fill a vacancy on its board of directors after a member had to step down recently.
“Wayne Sabanski, our Peterbilt representative, is leaving town, which is unfortunate,” said Chamber co-ordinator Dawn Booth.
The responsibilities of a director include:
•to help formulate and review various policies, proposed actions, programs, and projects so that the best interest of the Chamber and community can be accomplished through concerted action;
•to provide the personal leadership, enthusiasm, and support necessary to help co-ordinate and build an effective organization geared to solving community problems; and
•to evaluate and act on issues which come, or should come, before the board of directors.
The current board of directors consists of Darren Brown (B93-FM), Christine Denby (Gillons’ Insurance Brokers), Tannis Drysdale, Tammy Hayward (Red Dog Inn), Louise Holzer (Royal Bank), Tammi Shoemaker (Tammi’s Flowers, Cards and Gifts), Larry Syrovy (Rainy Lake Hotel), and Debbie Williamson (Clinic Pharmasave).
Booth noted anyone interested in the position may want to attend the board’s next meeting Sept. 10 at 11:45 a.m. at the Rainy Lake Hotel to “get a feel for who we are and what we’re about.”
You do not need to be a business owner to sit on the board but your affiliated business must belong to the Chamber, she added.
