West Ottawa Board of Trade Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The West Ottawa Board of Trade AGM was held on Tuesday, September 30 at the Holiday Inn & Suites Ottawa-Kanata. Over 80 members were represented at the event that included reports on the past year's activites from the Chair, Treasurer and Executive Director. Following the routine AGM business, attendees enjoyed an informative presentation from Karen Sparks, Executive Director for Wesley Clover Parks.
At the breakfast, an update was also provided on the Board of Trade's upcoming amalgamation with the Nepean Chamber of Commerce. With the targeted amalgamation date pushed back just a few weeks to November 1, twelve members of the 2013-14 Board of Directors were confirmed by the membership to remain in office until the amalgamation is completed, at which time 8 of the Directors, along with 7 from the Nepean Chamber, will form the new Board for the expanded West Ottawa Board of Trade.
