Though the Sicamous Chamber of Commerce was disappointed to bid farewell to two longtime board members, their shoes will be filled by three newcomers from the business community.

After Brenda Bushell and Eldon Kralkay decided not to run again, the board had a changing of the guard at its annual general meeting on May 14. In a statement on the agenda, chamber president Samantha Dunnett thanked the two for their more than five years of dedicated service.

“I personally want to thank Brenda Bushell and Eldon Kralkay for all their hard work on the chamber board over the years,” she said. “They have both been leaders and mentors for myself and so many board members, taking on the responsibility of the finance committee as well as the governance committee these last several years.”

Tammy Brown, Braydon Roebuck and Jocelyn Dishington will fill the void this term after answering the call for new members.

Brown, who also ran for Sicamous council in 2022, is the manager of facilities and maintenance at DECO Drugs and vice president of the Eagle Valley Arts Council, while Roebuck is the operations manager at Twin Anchors and sits on the Sicamous Tourism Advisory Board, and Dishington brings financial experience as a senior financial advisor with SASCU.

“Each one brings an array of skill sets that will complement the rest of our chamber board team,” chamber executive director Sheila Devost said of the new members.
