Brett Fraser, Festival Place
I think very highly of the work done to date by the Sherwood Park Chamber, and all who are involved, including the current leadership. With ample experience on multiple boards in all roles including as Chair, as well as having been a Executive Director to a provincial society and foundation, I bring a pattern of success that can help the governance leadership as well as the staff themselves. My work and life experience are focused on making community better through strong leadership.
On top of fun and light hearted memories that come from the entertainment side of our business, the cultural industry is an important part of the business community, providing benefits in creativity, branding, employee engagement, corporate social responsibility, and economic impact. I bring to the Sherwood Park Board, help in building towards a creative economy for Strathcona.

Dave Stanley-Smith, First Call Heating & Air Conditioning Inc.
Our company has been a member of the Chamber since 2006. In 2014 I was elected to the general board and served 2 years as a director and then moved onto the chamber executive and was fortunate to serve as the chamber president in 2016/17. As president I chaired several boards such as the Sherwood Park Trade Fair, After Hours Mixers and Christmas Cash. As a past president, I still enjoy staying very active with the Sherwood Park Chamber and continue to learn what the chamber does for our business community.
Over my tenure at the chamber, I have attended and provided input on topics of concern for business at all three levels of government to ensure business has a strong voice. I am humbly asking for your support to represent you on the board.
