PRESIDENT’S REPORT – December2018
The Chamber is getting ready for the new year
Since 1980, the Chamber of Commerce has offered the HD Stafford Good Citizen of the Year Award to a deserving resident of the Langley area, to thank them and recognize their outstanding contribution to the community. This award honours an individual who contributes towards bringing together education, business and citizens to make a difference in the community. We will be presenting the prestigious 2018 HD Stafford Good Citizen of the Year Award at our Holiday Dinner Meeting. Join us to celebrate the holiday season with JD Farm’s Turkey Dinner and Krause Berry Farms pie buffet, door prizes and entertainment. For further details or to register please go to www.langleychamber.com
On behalf of our Board of Directors and Staff we want to express our gratitude to all of you that embraced this years Giving Tuesday campaign. The Greater Langley Chamber is proud to support #LangleyGives and can’t wait to build on this year’s successful start to the giving season. Take a look at the fantastic videos that were created by our very own Brookswood Secondary students, by going to our Facebook page.
Remember to shop local this holiday season! Local businesses strengthen our community, build resilience, and foster innovation. They create the majority of new jobs, support local charities, contribute significantly to our tax base, and recirculate the dollars they make many times locally by supporting their neighbours. For a convenient directory of local businesses that can help you with your entire gift giving needs, please visit: www.langleychamber.com
As we enter the festive season and the end of 2018, I will take this opportunity to thank our Chamber members, Board of Directors, Staff, Sponsors and Event partners for their annual support of our various Chamber programs and events. We look forward to working with all of you in 2019! On behalf of the Board of Directors and our Amazing Team, we wish you all the best for the Holiday Season and a prosperous New Year!
Jack Nicholson, President
