This past quarter was an exciting one at the Chamber, highlighted by the announcement of Deborah Yedlin as our incoming President and CEO, effective July 5, 2021. I am confident that under her leadership, the Chamber will be stronger than ever, and will continue to serve the Calgary business community as we recover and emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this edition of Influence, we dive deeper into some of the key opportunities that will help catalyze and accelerate our economic recovery. We look at inclusive growth, the idea that we can grow the economy by adding more seats to the table for those historically underrepresented in our economy. We also explore the importance of the Canada-US border, the importance of economic reconciliation with Indigenous communities, and the future of our clean technology ecosystem.
I would like to thank the Calgary business community for trusting me to lead your Chamber over the past several months, amidst some of the most challenging times our city has seen. It has been one of the greatest honours of my career to have had the opportunity to serve our agile, resilient, and entrepreneurial business community.
