The Bowen Island Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce that Robert Wall is now the new chamber manager. He will be starting in the new year and operating the chamber office out of the Rob Wall Gallery (robertwallstudio.com) in Artisan Square.
On the island for 22 years, Wall has run his graphic design/digital/web business for 28 years and has just recently opened his on-island gallery/studio. He comes from an extensive advertising/marketing background that he will be utilizing to bring the chamber into the information age.
Among the many tasks before him, he will design and build a live hub-based chamber website, broadcast and record meetings and post on YouTube, introduce marketing workshops, initiate a Snug Cove development advisory board to advise council on the OCP, develop an overall marketing plan for Bowen, grow the membership, develop Bowen Island merchandising, promote the online features via QR codes on posters and other print media, and, of course, distribute the Bowen map, renegotiate the running of the info centre, support local events and projects.
Robert is looking forward to taking on this challenge and hopes to contact people online or at the meetings in the new year (please wait until after January 1). Watch for the Undercurrent and email notices to every island business.
The chamber is us, so only we can make it better!
Daniel Heald and Robert Wall,
Bowen Island Chamber of Commerce
