Each year, the Timmins Chamber of Commerce names a new President. This past year the President was Nancy Mageau, and now she is handing off the duties to Val Venneri.

“I’m really looking forward to the year, I know it’s going to be a big commitment time wise, but I’m truly looking forward to it. It’s a cause that I believe in and I’ve enjoyed the past five years here at the Chamber.” said Venneri

Being Chamber president must be a tough and challenging job to have, so a little advice can go a long way…

“My advice would be to just be involved and to listen to the membership, be active in a way where you can help the community prosper.”  -said Mageau

Both Venneri and Mageau acknowledged that there is still plenty of work to be done, but Venneri showed a lot of confidence during his speech, and ended his speech with “It’s going to be a good year”

Venneri and the Chamber now have 12 months to keep finding ways to help the community prosper, and to keep business rolling here in Timmins.
