At the first meeting of the board of directors of the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce held earlier this week, the President Mr. Kanwar Dhanjal announced the portfolios of the new board members. The new board comprises nine elected directors. It may be recalled that on September 21, 2017, at the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting, the members elected six new directors for a two-year term, and three directors are in the middle of their two year term.

Prior to assigning the new responsibilities, Mr. Dhanjal held intensive discussions with the directors to gauge their interests and aptitude and together the board charted out a daring and ambitious path for the Chamber for the next 12 months.

“Our target will be to enhance our outreach, enhance membership and sponsorship, and to ensure connectivity with members,” Mr. Dhanjal said.
