New Face at The Chamber The Chamber is excited to announce our former co-op student, Brendan Miller, has accepted a permanent role as a Member Representative. Brendan is a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Business Administration program at Camosun College and worked this past summer to get donations for our 35th Annual Dinner Auction. At Camosun, Brendan was a member of the Chargers Basketball team where he developed his leadership and communication skills. Brendan has a competitive side, but thinks that it pushes him to strive relentlessly for the very best results in his personal, academic, and corporate life.

Brendan is looking forward to connecting with future and existing members— introduce yourself at the next Chamber event (at well over 6' he stands out from the crowd), or give him a call at 250-3603471 to see how he can help you.
