On March 23, 2020, the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Shirley deSilva resigned her position. The chamber has officially begun a search for a new CEO. The successful candidate will manage all aspects of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, a 650 member non-profit organization.
For decades, the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce has played an active and vital role in Sarnia Lambton’s growth. But even before its official incorporation in 1905, the Chamber can trace its roots back to the late 1800s. It all started on Feb. 26, 1860 with an informal meeting of prominent businessmen who wanted to increase economic trade and manufacturing within the town.
The CEO is the face of the organization and is required to sit on numerous local boards in addition to all Chamber committees and to attend all Chamber events. Interested candidates can send resumes in confidence to Mary Jean O’Donnell, Chair of the Board of Directors, by email (email@example.com). Closing date for applications is May 15, 2020.
