The Peterborough Chamber of Commerce won two National awards on the weekend at the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada held in Regina, Saskatchewan.
On Saturday, Peterborough Chamber CEO Stuart Harrison and Manager of Membership Services Karen August made a presentation to a packed room of Chamber staff and volunteers from across the Country as one of three finalists in the annual Chamber Competition.

“Each year, the Canadian Chamber chooses a different theme for this competition," Stuart Harrison says. "This year the theme was 'Membership in the age of Google' and we were chosen for the strategy and techniques we employ to communicate the business message to both our members and the public at large."
On Friday night, Peterborough Chamber Policy Analyst and Communication Specialist Sandra Dueck was awarded the Employee of the Year award.
The award is presented annually at the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Canada awards dinner. Sandra was recognized for the work she has done to help the Peterborough Chamber amplify issues of importance to business at all three levels of Government.
