A fond farewell for Chamber president

The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce will elect a new board and president at its AGM on June 18.

Angie Quaale has finished her term as president of the Langley Chamber of Commerce. A new board and president will be elected at the AGM on June 18.

The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is hosting its 82nd Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, June 18 at Cascades Casino starting at 5 p.m.

“The agenda for the meeting will include the election and swearing in of Officers and Directors to form the 2013/2014 Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors,” said Chamber President, Angie Quaale. There will be an election for a new president that night too.  The Langley mayors will swear in the new board.

Quaale has the highest regard for her experiences as the president.

“It is one of the most rewarding experience of my life,” said Quaale, who stays on as past president. Not one to sit idle, Quaale now takes on the role of chairperson of Tourism Langley.

“I learned so much at the Chamber and met the most interesting people. It’s a lot of work but you get out of it what you put in it,” she said.

She said Langley’s Chamber members are mostly made up of small business owners “fighting in the trenches to make a living.”

Quaale owns Well Seasoned Gourmet Store and cooking classes on the Langley Bypass.

She’s proud of the “progressive” Langley councils that recognize the contributions of small business to the community.

“It’s not like that in every municipality,” she said.

The AGM will feature the presentation “Realizing our Full Potential as a Tech Community in BC” with special guest speaker Bill Tam, President & CEO, BC Technology Industry Association (BCTIA).

The cost of this dinner meeting is $30 for Chamber members and $45 for non Chamber members. People can register by calling the Chamber office at 604-530-6656 or online at www.langleychamber.com.
