• Board of Directors


    Leadership. We hear about it constantly in business. There are countless books on the topic yet so often it seems to be lacking. But not here.

    The West Ottawa Board of Trade is truly a community of leaders. Business leaders. Subject matter experts. Community leaders. Mentors. All of them working together to strengthen this region and build on our collective success.

    As the incoming Chair of the Board of Directors, I am extremely excited by the incredible work done by our organization over the past year. As we enter 2018, we will continue to focus on solidifying our vision of being the key advocate for business in West Ottawa. As our community’s voice of business, we have spent much of the past year making outstanding progress in the areas of advocacy, collaboration, community partnerships, membership development, and networking opportunities. The coming year will see us continue to focus on these key areas as we work to implement our new Strategic Plan.
