New Chamber Board

The pandemic has caused us to reflect and modify how the Chamber does business and how we manage and execute our responsibilities as a not-for-profit organization. For the second year now, we set up a Zoom virtual AGM on April 21 and invited members to attend.

Matt Breedlove, Board Chair of the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce, chaired the AGM and he summarized the process this way: ‘The Nomination Period was advertised in the Chamber newsletter and nominations were received for the Treasurer position and 3 Directors; all were acclaimed. The year end financial statements were reviewed and passed by membership and the annual report, highlighting Chamber activities over the year was presented.” Matt says:  “As a resident of Qualicum Beach for 37 years I’ve experienced numerous changes in our beautiful Community. It gives me great pleasure to have the opportunity to give back and work with such a diverse and talented Board of Directors. We all share the same feelings of keeping our quaint Town vibrant, enjoyable, sustainable and one of the best places in Canada to live, shop & play.”

We are very pleased to announce the new Board of Directors for 2021/2022:

Matt Breedlove, Chair – Royal LePage Parksville-Qualicum Beach Realty Andy Lee, Ocean Crest Motel
Daniella Novak, Vice Chair – CIBC Jay Norton, JR Norton Inc.
Bonnie Cyre, Treasurer – Raymond James Ltd. Krista Robins, Berwick Qualicum Beach
DIRECTORS Virginia Worcester,  Borealis Hair & Body Bar
Robin Bruner, Swell Sweets

Thank you to those who took the time to attend the virtual AGM and please join me in welcoming the new 2020/2021 board of directors.

A New Brand for Qualicum Beach

 

The Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Town of Qualicum Beach are leading our community through a place branding process. With the help of our branding agency, Taiji Brand Group we are working on a place branding process to develop a contemporary brand strategy and visual identity.  The goal is a unifying message that will generate community pride, economic and community development, tourism, commerce and broader awareness of Qualicum Beach.

 

 

Now it’s your turn…Please watch both videos for all the details.

Oceanside Benchmark – Community Art Project

Benches Coming to the Community in June!

Artists & Community Groups

Project Description:

A co-generational public art project designed to encourage community creativity and collaboration!

A wonderful opportunity to showcase local artists, community groups and our welcoming community.

Artists and community groups are invited to design and create their vision of a Welcome Bench and ‘leave their mark on the community’ with Benchmark. The purpose of the welcome bench is to engage visitors and locals and help bring more character and personality to the community. The concept behind Benchmark is to encourage people to sit and contemplate, be at peace and perhaps even be ….’Inspired by the wait’. To unify, connect and inspire creativity in our community.

Thirty benches will be displayed in pre-determined locations in the Oceanside region from Nanoose to Bowser. At the end of the summer, the art benches will be auctioned off as part of a fundraiser for the MAC, TOSH and the Chambers.

We invite you to be …inspired by the wait.
