Earlier this week, several members of the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce headed “over the river” to attend the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce second annual St. Clair County & International Networking Event, an opportunity for business people to connect “beyond the border.”
Among those in attendance from Canada were CEO Shirley de Silva (pictured far right), Stephen Thompson, CEO of the Sarnia Lambton Economic Partnership (second from right), and Eric Bastiaansen of Bean Tree Farms (second from left). Also pictured are Thelma Castillo, CEO and president of the Blue Water Area Chamber (far left), and Quentin L. Bishop, director of Business Attraction with the St. Clair County Economic Development Alliance (middle).
This was a great opportunity to mix and mingle with neighbours from Michigan and one of the unique aspects of living in close proximity to another country.
Both the Sarnia Lambton Chamber and the Port Huron Chamber have representatives from each other’s organization on their board.
