Welcome A-Board!

The Kelowna Chamber 2015/16 Term is just underway. There were 6 director's seats up for grabs, and after we had 11 candidates apply for the positions, we posted their answers to our questions online and went to a vote. The election remained open for 2 weeks and we collected about 300 votes. It was a very close race! The final results saw directors with equal amount of votes as well as some 1, 2 and 3 apart. With the calibur of candidates we had, it is no wonder:


Brian Bonsma*; Speedpro Signs
Tom Dyas*; TD Benefit Solutions
Una Gabie, Touchstone Law Group LLP
Dustin Serviss, Serviss Wealth Management
Brad Field, PRE Labs
Alexandra Babbel, Opera Kelowna
Angela Nagy, GreenStep Solutions Inc.
Sonja Riediger, Honka Homes
Angela McManus, The Vibrant Vine
Al Hildebrandt, QHR Technologies Inc.
Stuart Grant, MNP LLP




We are pleased to welcome back our incumbents Brian Bonsma & Tom Dyas for another term, as well as the following new directors: 

  • Una Gabie (Touchstone Law)
  • Stuart Grant (MNP LLP)
  • Angela Nagy (Greenstep Solutions)
  • Al Hildebrandt (QHR Technologies)
    New Directors being sworn in

They were elected alongside incumbents  and will round out the Board of 14 members. Ken Carmichael will lead as President and all will be sworn in later this month. We are thrilled that so many were interested in joining our organization and look forward to the diversity these individuals will bring to the table.
