Sparwood Chamber of Commerce doubled its attendance from last year at its annual general meeting last week.
Forty people attended the event at the Causeway Bay Hotel last Wednesday and a new President and board was announced.
“It was a huge success,” said Michael Decker, Sparwood Chamber of Commerce Manager.
“I think the attendance was a recognition of our process of renewal and the new direction the Chamber is heading.
“People came from outside Sparwood to attend, and I think this shows Sparwood’s is the chamber to be a part of now and going into the future.
“I think the new management is showing a willingness to work with businesses and this is really pushing us forward.”
