Chamber of Commerce president resigns for personal reasons

Red Deer Chamber of Commerce president Tyler Bowman has resigned halfway through his one-year term.

Red Deer Chamber of Commerce president Tyler Bowman has resigned halfway through his one-year term.

The chamber announced his resignation from the board of directors on Thursday.

“It’s for personal reasons,” said Bowman. “Sometimes you have to look out for what’s best for the organization and yourself and this is what happens.”

Bowman said he plans to continue to work with the chamber.

“I look forward to working with them on the policy committees. The chamber has some great projects coming forward.”

Bowman works as the special events co-ordinator at the Downtown Business Association and also has his own company, Bowman Realty.

He officially took over as president at the chamber’s annual general meeting last September. He has been on the board since 2010.

Second vice-president Reeve Martin, owner of The Property Shop Inc., will take on the president’s duties for the next 18 months.

In its statement, the chamber thanks Bowman for his commitment and many volunteer hours that he has given to the group.

They say they “look forward to Tyler’s continued involvement with their committees and through their many chamber events.”

Martin shares that view.

“I’m certainly hoping he’ll stay involved because he did a lot of policy work with the chamber.”
