Deb McClelland, the longtime executive director of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, has announced her resignation.
She will leave her role effective December 31 of this year.
In a news release, the Chamber of Commerce says they’re confident that they will continue to serve the needs of members through the transition.
“Thanks to Deb’s guidance and leadership, the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is in a strong position to move forward in the search for a new executive director,” the release says.
President of the board of directors for the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, Joshua Knaak, says McClelland has had a big impact on the community.
“Whenever Kamloops Chamber of Commerce board directors attend events outside of Kamloops, we are quickly reminded of the impact that Deb has made to the Chamber network and business community across the country,” Knaack says.
“The work that she has done in developing a strong and steady Chamber in Kamloops has been duplicated in so many communities through the work she has done as a provincial and national leader, mentor and guide.”
