Smithers District Chamber of Commerce

Goodbye (for now) from Sheena Miller, Chamber Manager

August 25, 2020

I found it an invaluable experience to assist our board in hiring a passionate and community service minded leader to continue to advance our Chamber priorities. Jill Barrowman will work hard to represent your business needs, challenges, and ideas in this coming year.

What a fast moving, fascinating and, with the Covid-19 experience, rather unusual chamber year it has been! Thank you for your confidence in me and for allowing me the opportunity to work closely with you in addressing a long list of important chamber initiatives. Together, we have achieved a great deal. As I reflect on the work we have done since I began my position with the chamber last August, I am proud and highly satisfied with our shared work in the following areas: 

Planning creative Chamber events and projects: GoByBike Business Tour, New Business Reception, Virtual Canada Day, and collaboration on many more events

For now, I prepare to temporarily leave the Chamber in competent, caring and highly skilled hands. With much excitement, I say farewell for now as I (and my family) prepare to welcome a new baby girl in early September. I will be monitoring and responding to emails over the month of August. As always, please reach out with questions, concerns and comments - before I’m officially on duty at my “other” new job!!
It’s been a pleasure to represent our Chamber network in the past year and I look forward to returning to my role in the months ahead. Take care, be calm, be safe, be kind, be exceptional everyone!

Sincerely, Sheena Miller

We have tried to build on what Don and Tom started here years ago. Our philosophy is somewhat simple, we try to work hard every day and provide straightforward communication with our customers. We tell our staff, ‘treat our customers like we ourselves would like to be treated.’
