Dear Laurentian Chamber Members and Community,

We are happy to announce that the Laurentian Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors has hired a new president and CEO to lead this incredible organization.  Erik Holmstrom has an impressive list of skills and experience that will be especially valuable as the community weathers the COVID-19 pandemic.
