KAMLOOPS - After nearly 20 years with the Chamber of Commerce, executive director Deb McClelland has announced her resignation.

McClelland says she will continue expanding her business Onboard, a consulting agency that trains boards of directors of not-for-profit organizations across Canada.

“For the last five years, I’ve been developing a little business on the side, travelling and training boards of directors,” she says.

Chamber president Joshua Knaak says in a media release the work McClelland has accomplished with the Chamber of Commerce has been recognized nationally.

“Whenever Kamloops Chamber of Commerce board directors attend events outside of Kamloops, we are quickly reminded of the impact that Deb has made to the Chamber network and business community across the country." Knaak says in the news release. "The work that she has done in developing a strong and steady Chamber in Kamloops has been duplicated in so many communities through the work she has done as a provincial and national leader, mentor and guide.”

McClelland says her business has gotten increasingly busier over the last few years and is excited to continue travelling across B.C. and the country in her consulting role.

“We are extremely tight there (at the Chamber) so there is a level of sadness but I am looking forward to the new opportunity,” she says.

McClelland's last day will be Dec. 31.
