New vice president added to Elk Point Chamber executive

Faith Hunter of RF Protection & K9 Services was elected by acclamation as vice president of the Elk Point Chamber of Commerce.

ELK POINT – Elk Point and District Chamber of Commerce held the elections for their 2024 executive as part of last Wednesday’s regular meeting, with president Terri Hampson, treasurer Kaytlynn Dunning and secretary Vicki Brooker returned by acclamation. There is one new face on the executive, with Faith Hunter of RF Protection & K9 Services elected by acclamation as vice president for the coming year. 

Hampson expressed thanks to Jean Pelchat for his year as vice president in 2023, and said that this year will be her seventh and last year as president. She has developed a list of multiple plans to streamline the president’s role during this term and to leave everything in place for an easy transition for her successor at the beginning of 2025.

This year’s membership drive has been going well, with 37 members to date, who will receive window clings signifying their membership.

This month’s agenda received two requests for sponsorship from local volunteer groups. The first, from the Elk Point Theatre Project for their upcoming production of ‘Matilda,’ will be sent out to the Chamber members, as part of the next Chamber newsletter.

A request for support was also received from the Elk Point Fire Department for their upcoming Fireman’s Ball on March 9, with the decision made for a $300 cash donation and a gift basket for the event’s silent auction.

One major event for the coming year is the first ever 60 km Iron Horse Elk Run, and Hampson reported that 20 registrations are already in for the Oct. 5 event that will be hosted by the Chamber with assistance from Northern Lights Library System staff and other volunteers.

The Economic Development Committee meeting usually held on the evening of the same day as the chamber of commerce meeting was moved ahead one week to Feb. 21, due to Valentine’s Day.
