Leduc Chamber executive director Jennifer Garries and Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce president Wayne Di Lallo made a presentation to Millet town council at its Nov. 9 meeting.

Earlier this fall the Leduc Regional Chamber of Commerce team took over the direction of the struggling Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce. Municipal governing bodies in the area are being approached by the core chamber team for 2017 funding.

On Nov. 8 executive director Jennifer Garries approached Leduc County council with a request for $34,670. “We’re $3,000 more than last year,” said Garries.

Garries also informed council about the new events the chambers are looking to host next year: Meet in the Millet, an event for the municipalities of the region to come together once a year.

Council accepted the presentation as information and deferred financial decisions to the 2017 budget deliberations.

Garries, and Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce president Wayne Di Lallo also made a presentation to Millet town council at its Nov. 9 meeting. “We’re excited to serve this community as well,” said Garries.

Council was asked for $500, for Meet in the Millet and another $500 for a WetaskiWINS Business Awards award. “We’re asking you to come back as a member at the not-for-profit rate of $140 per year,” said Garries.
