The Digby & Area Board of Trade is pleased to announce the formation of an advocacy committee.
Being that Boards of Trade and Chambers of Commerce speak for the voices of business, this committee will be looking to get feedback from our business and to take those voices to various levels of government and also to the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce as well as the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. Dan White has been appointed by the Board of Directors to be the Chair of this committee. Dan brings extensive experience in advocacy work and will spearhead this committee.
