Kiel Giddens will continue his reign atop of the Prince George Chamber of Commerce.

During the organization’s virtual AGM, he was elected to a second term while the Chamber also welcomed four new members to the board.

“This has been a tough year, but when we stick together, we’ll not only see economic recovery, but Prince George business will be back and better than ever. So far in 2021, we’re seeing businesses innovating to persevere through the pandemic, as well as new business start-ups, and a resumption of activities on major projects,” said Giddens.

“Prince George can lead the Province as a great place to live, work, and start a business, and I look forward to working with the new Chamber Board in the year ahead to support our members and our community.”
