Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce elects new board

Dustin Snider elected board president

The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commence has elected its 2019-20 board of directors, including its new board president, Dustin Snider.

Snider, a managing partner at Earls Kitchen + Bar Restaurant, was the board’s vice-president in 2019-20, and just completed his first three-year term on the board.

Snider said he was pleased to see such strong representation on the board from across the business community.

“I’ve always been so impressed and encouraged by the way our business community has stood up and supported all the initiatives that go on in order to build and strengthen both non-profit and educational institutions, as well as our for-profit business community,” Snider said.
