Greetings Fellow Members of the Dufferin Business Community!
I hope that between the time when I write this and you read it that the sleet, snow, freezing rain and wind that we’ve experienced the last few days have turned to some sun and nicer weather. This winter much like Covid doesn’t want to completely let go.
Your Board of Trade has been busy over the last several weeks planning for the Industry Luncheon this Thursday, April 7th with our partners from the Greater Dufferin Homebuilders Association and the Rotary Club of Orangeville. It is great to see this event return and it will be better still to see so many of you at it in person. It promises to be a great event that wouldn’t be possible without our many sponsors.
Next month DBOT will be holding its annual general meeting and I hope that many of you will tune in to see all of the hard work that gets done behind the scenes (mostly by our wonderful staff)! I urge you to participate in our board and consider one of the two openings that we currently have. It is a great group and I am sure that you would enjoy working with them as I do.
They are a little further down the line but planning is already underway for the Business Excellence Awards as well as municipal all candidates events both provincially and municipally in the fall.
If there is anything that DBOT can do to help your business thrive or to advocate on your behalf we will do our best to be there for you!
Doug Harkness BA, MBA
Chair-elect, Dufferin Board of Trade
