John Gibeau has been re-elected president of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, where four new faces are joining the board of directors.

Jim Heuving (Pacific Community Church), Marian Maletta (Westminster Savings), Gary Oliver (Urban Safari Rescue Society) and Tom Taylor (LegalShield and Surrey Little Theatre) were elected to the board at the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting, when six positions were up for election late last month.

The newbies join returning directors Shell Busey (Shell Busy’s Housesmart Home Services), Roger Doull (Quality Wine Centres), John Gibeau (Honeybee Centre), Tammy Johnson (BMO Bank of Montreal), Brock Lazaruk (Fraser Downs), Nazarene Mohammed (BDC), Jeff Richards (J.E. Richards Ltd.) and Baljit Sabharwal (Copytek Print Centre) on the board.

Six board members will be serving a one-year term, with the rest serving two-year terms.

On Nov. 3, the board met to choose its executive for the coming term. Gibeau remains in the position of president, Taylor will serve as vice president, Richards as secretary, and Oliver as treasurer.

Gibeau thanked outgoing board members Jas Chhina, Sherrold Haddad and former vice-president Judy Higginbotham, who narrowly missed winning the seat in South Surrey-White Rock for the federal Liberals on Oct. 19, for their dedication and guidance.

Last month, members approved a change in the term of office for its board of directors allowing half of the board to be elected annually.

In the future, the Chamber will be electing six board members for two year terms each year at the annual general meeting.

The changes to the Chamber’s constitution and bylaws are intended to help ensure the organization’s goals and objectives are maintained from year to year.

The Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce represents more than 400 member businesses in Surrey’s historic business district.
