Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce, Sunshine Coast BC

Ted McNicol elected Chamber President

 New Executive Committee at Gibsons Chamber

Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors recently elected Ted McNicol as President to helm the organization. Together with his crew – Vice President Fran Miller, Secretary Joe Oteruelo, Treasurer Milynda Taylor, Directors Deb Mowbray and Casie Spears – McNicol welcomes the opportunity to represent the growing business community. He notes that “the new Board reflects a revitalized approach to addressing business needs, focusing on best practices and better service for those who live on or visit our spectacular Sunshine Coast.”

McNicol noted that the newly-reconstituted Board Executive “is really energized” to meet the needs of Chamber members. “We are working with other Coast Chambers to further enhance the business environment, providing information, networking opportunities and professional development attuned to the needs of all levels of business in the area. This is extremely important, given the number of home-based entrepreneurs whose link to other businesses can be enhanced through Chamber activities.”

“Gibsons, along with the whole Sunshine Coast, is facing tremendous growth and the Gibsons Chamber is striving to represent the business community’s concerns arising from this,” said McNicol. “Challenges include finding workers, and then finding housing for those workers, as well as attracting new businesses and business people to the Coast.” He added, “Businesses on the Sunshine Coast are having to shift rapidly towards serving a much larger customer base as more and more people ‘discover’ the area.

With this challenge, the three Chambers are re-emphasizing the need to build a welcoming, service-oriented culture. The Chambers’ coordinated “Business Excellence Awards” recognize those enterprises and entrepreneurs providing a superior customer-oriented experience.”
