Alder Recipient of Board of Governors Award
We are very pleased to announce Bill Alder, President of Sealand Aviation as the recipient of the 2018 Campbell River Chamber Board of Governor’s award. This prestigious award honours an individual who displays a significant commitment to the success of both their business and community as a whole; demonstrates leadership and vision and serves as a positive role model or mentor for other businesspeople in the community. Bill exemplifies this through the international success of Sealand, that he founded in 1981 and is now known worldwide for the DHC extension kit and the Alaska door. He brought TeenFlight to Campbell River connecting teens to aviation and giving back so generously of his time and talent to help them experience building their own plane. He established and operates the only fixed wing flight school in Campbell River. Bill will be honoured at the upcoming Chamber Business Awards of Distinction Saturday, September 29th at the tide mark theatre and tickets are available at www.campbellriverchamber.ca

With October celebrating Small Business, we will be conducting our Business Walk on October 18th. Local leaders will be visiting owners and managers to gather information used to help businesses thrive and prosper. Walkers will conduct a short survey onsite. The Chamber will then create a simple report that will convey highlights of the walk and an action plan that will allow the business community to see where their input is being applied.
