New and long-time Chamber Members gathered at the new Bite @ The Quay restaurant for the Chamber's annual Summer Soiree sponsored by Digby Leigh & Company.  Digby joined Louise, President of the N.V.C.C., in recognizing several 5-10-15-20 and even 45 & 50 year membership milestone anniversaries. Digby pulled the winning names for the eight door prizes that were beautifully wrapped and placed around the room.  Congratulations to all of the winners and milestone members, and we hope you can join us next year for this signature event. 

Digby Leigh & Company's Sponsorship of the NVCC's Annual Summer Soiree

On Wednesday July 16th, the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce and event sponsor Digby Leigh & Company held the annual Summer Soiree atop picturesque Grouse Mountain. The event featured stunning views, delicious hors d’oeuvres and live jazz courtesy of the Nikko Whitworth Trio. Guests also had the opportunity to arrive early and take advantage of everything Grouse Mountain has to offer, including the Wildlife Refuge, the grizzly bear habitat and the world-famous lumberjack show

The event also served as introduction to our new Chamber Board and a celebration of those members who have reached milestone anniversaries in their membership. Our two newest board members, David Kim of the BDC and Pararin Rahmani of North Shore Law, were sworn in by Jim Belsheim, president of Neptune Terminals and the immediate past chair of the BC Chamber of Commerce

Congratulations to all of our Milestone Members, we recognize and salute your dedication to the Chamber! Click here to see a full list of our members celebrating anniversary milestones in 2014.
