************************ Congratulations to Wayne Brunsch on being named the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce’s Volunteer of the Year and thank you from the Board of Directors and the staff of the Chamber of Commerce for all of your efforts.
During his time as a volunteer for the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce, Wayne has proven to be both committed and insightful.
He has been a member of both the Chamber’s Business Development and Education and Training Committees as a representative of Workplace Safety and Prevention Services, formerly the Industrial Accident Prevention Association.
In 2008, Wayne was instrumental in helping the Education and Training Committee coordinate a series of four workshops focused on Health and Safety.
Many will recognize Wayne from not just the Chamber of Commerce, but from the many other agencies that have benefitted from his volunteer services including WSPS, the Canadian Red Cross, Rotary Fest, and Algoma Public Health, just to name a few.
The Chamber is powered by its membership and by the many volunteers that take the time to assist and guide the organization.
Thank you to Wayne for taking on the challenge and congratulations on being named the Chamber’s Volunteer of the Year.
