Political Action Day
The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce recently returned from Political Action Day in Edmonton. Political Action Day, which is hosted by the Alberta Chamber of Commerce, brings together Alberta Chambers of Commerce and Members of Legislative Assembly, the individuals who are directly responsible for the execution and administration of the government’s policies and priorities. 

The Chamber of Commerce was honoured to have had the opportunity to connect with action drivers, and enjoy face-to-face conversation in a roundtable setting. Each roundtable, hosted by a Member of the Legislative Assembly, was abuzz, enabling an informal exchange of ideas, concerns, and opinions with the Alberta governments top officials. 
The Mission of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce is to create the best environment for doing business. Your voice being heard at all levels of government is integral in our efforts to protect and improve key business conditions related to areas such as economic competitiveness, workforce issues, taxes, economic development, and more. 

As we prepare to enter the second year of our Strategic Plan, we look forward to continuing to actively advocate for the key issues that are impacting our local community. Your role in this is vital and we encourage you to reach out to our staff, participate in our surveys, and join our committees and task forces to ensure that we are the strongest voice possible when representing membership locally, provincially, and nationally. 
Thank you for attending the 2019 President's Reception!

Top 40 Under Forty: Frances Luzille Doria
Frances Luzille Doria is CEO and founder of Doria Communications and alongside her parents helped found Doria & Doria Canada Immigration Consulting.

Frances considers herself a global citizen. She has been to 40+ countries and has lived and worked in 17 of those countries.

Growing up in multiple cultural settings has fundamentally shaped who she is: being raised in Montreal taught her to embrace the plurality within individual identities; growing up in Bohol taught her to enjoy the simplicity of island life; spending her adolescence in Colorado taught her to love nature; having Madrid as one of her “home bases” taught her the value of a well-balanced life; and of course, Lethbridge taught her the value of community.

Frances hopes to be a conduit for Lethbridge to the global landscape, and vice versa. Her connection with Lethbridge began by occasionally visiting her parents, who moved here from Montreal in 2010.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Development (Economics specialization) from McGill University, with a double minor in Cross-Cultural Management (for which she studied abroad in Brazil) and Sustainability (which she studied at the McGill campus in Barbados). She pursued a Master’s degree in International Business from Hult International Business School in London, UK.

Professionally, Frances’ background spans a variety of sectors: from Fair Trade at Ten Thousand Villages; to Private Aviation at Bombardier Aerospace and Vistajet; to being a Student Consultant at LebaraPlay; and then to being a Global Business Developer for boutique media firms, where she negotiated with C-level executives and government leaders in several countries.

Frances wants to empower other entrepreneurs to think big and understand the global landscape. She especially wants to empower women-led and minority-owned businesses in Canada and globally.

In May 2018, Frances lead her family business to a grand prize victory at the Chinook Entrepreneurship Challenge. She recently competed against 3,580 talented young professionals across Canada through various challenges and a virtual bootcamp to become Adecco Group CEO for One Month , gaining her experience leading a Fortune 500 company.

She is an advocate for representation, especially in business. Her expansive international experience has opened Frances’ eyes to the harsh realities that women of colour face while trying to break the glass ceiling. This has driven her passion in cultivating social enterprises and bringing underrepresented talents to the forefront.

Despite a self-proclaimed transient lifestyle, Frances always tries to leave a positive footprint wherever she is. Her involvement with her parents’ immigration consultancy allowed her to provide assistance to refugee clients, especially through translation. She has worked as a volunteer with the Lethbridge Family Services and Saint Martha’s Parish.

For outstanding achievement as a global citizen and entrepreneur, The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce and BDO are proud to recognize Frances Luzille Doria as one of Lethbridge’s Top 40 Under Forty !
