Celebrating, meeting and supporting our local businesses!
I am very pleased to have recently initiated a partnership with the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce! On May 20, 2015, I co-hosted a luncheon with many of our Pembina Highway businesses! Perth’s, WinPlus, UPS and more local business owners attended! As the area City Councillor, it is important to have a good working relationship with local businesses so we can work together to maximize opportunities and simplify challenges! The ‘Pembina Strip’ businesses make a significant contribution to our economy, and I’m pleased to support them!
This excerpt was taken from the recent Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce newsletter:
“A gorgeous spring day led to an amazing atmosphere at the South Chapter’s latest meeting as special guest speaker, Wade Miller, Winnipeg Blue Bombers President & CEO, shared insights such as:
- Blue Bombers/Investors Groups Field role in business community in the South
- Impacts of the facility and team on the surrounding businesses
- Opportunities for corporate/individual involvement for the upcoming 2015 Grey Cup festivities
It was an incredibly engaging session with the leader of a community-integrated organization that affects many aspects of our city, including small- and medium-sized businesses. Shout out to Janice Lukes, City Councillor for South Winnipeg – St. Norbert Ward, for bringing greetings and going door-to-door to interact with local business owners and invite them to participate in our chapter. You’re a rock star! The impact of the South Chapter at the Winnipeg Chamber would not be possible without our South Chapter sponsor, NRM Telecom and Security Services and their owner, Neil Murray, who allow us to continue to give value to our members. Thank You! The South Chapter is where it’s at!”
