Message from Executive Director

First of all, I want to welcome the new Board members and Executive as we make plans for the new year for the Chamber, I am fortunate to have some great and dedicated volunteers to be involved with the Chamber.
As you all know, restrictions have been easing but things have still been challenging for many industries and for us, for planning events. We had our first Morning coffee mixer virtually with Karen Cumberland, the ED of the PEI Alliance of Mental Well Being. We had our second one in person at C&B Corner Café on March 8th with a guest speaker, Leadership Coach - Julie Ann Gauthier. It was great to see people interacting with one another and enjoying the great food at C&B.

We are in the planning stages of the Annual President's Dinner, save the date Thursday, May 12th, more details to come very soon!
Please follow along on our social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter @ktownchamber to keep up to date on events, learn more about the benefits offered and promoting our members!
