Delta Chamber's Roaf honoured
Peter Roaf, Executive Director of the Delta Chamber of Commerce was recognized by his peers with the Gerry Frederick Memorial Executive of the Year Award at the British Columbia Chamber Executives (BCCE) AGM and Conference held over the weekend in Smithers.
The award is presented annually to a chamber executive who has made a difference in their community, fostered membership growth in the chamber and has been willing to take risks to achieve change.
The award also recognizes an executive who has served as a champion of the chamber network, as a mentor to new executives and deemed to be a leader by their peers and their chamber.
"Peter Roaf is all of these and more" said Deb McClelland, past president of BCCE. "He has been a mentor to chamber executives across the province and has provided guidance and leadership to strengthen the chamber movement as the 'Voice of Business'" added McClelland.
