    Rick Kaminsky and his Chamber Board experience started in 2014 as a Director, and was moved up rather rapidly through the ranks and by 2018 was serving a second term as Chair of the Spruce Grove and District Chamber of Commerce where Rick is currently the Past Chair.  Over the past number of years, Rick has focused quite a bit of his time and attention to the Chambers of Commerce, both in Stony Plain and Spruce Grove through thoughtful input and support for many business and community events.  Rick takes a great deal of pride in his attendance at both Board meetings as well as grand openings and other events and has traveled  the Province and Country to represent our Chambers.

    Since being on the Executive, it has been his internal mandate to further the success of the Region and make every effort possible to reduce the perception of border and boundary.  In the Spring of 2015, Rick initiated discussions with the Stony Plain Chamber for the feasibility of a unified Chamber, and with the support of the Spruce Grove and Stony Plain Boards have been championing the cause since then to the point where we have nearly completed our journey.  For more information about Rick read here
