The Yukon Chamber of Commerce (YCC) congratulates Stanley Noel (YCC Chairperson) for his nomination and acceptance to the Board of Directors of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
Stanley has been the Chair for the Yukon Chamber since June 2016 and is one of few Northerners who holds the distinction as a certified Corporate Director (ICD.D) with the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Business Institute of Corporate Directors Program.
Peter Turner, YCC President explained that “with Stanley’s professional background as an experienced Corporate Director, combined with his wealth of business experience, he will make a great addition to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce board. We are very lucky to have someone of this caliber from the Yukon agree to represent our interests at the national level, and joining three other new and incumbent territorial board members, significantly increases the northern voice on the Canadian Chamber of Commerce board.”
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Board is the largest and most influential business association in Canada, with 450 chambers of commerce and boards of trade, representing more than 250,000 businesses of all sizes, sectors of the economy and regions of Canada.
Working alongside senior executives from some of Canada’s largest companies and publicly traded companies, Mr. Noel’s tenure on the Board of Directors with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce will strengthen the link between Yukon businesses and national businesses.
While accepting the position was an easy decision, Noel stated that “I am humbled to accept this important role as an advocate for northern businesses. I would like to acknowledge the honour that comes with this position and more importantly point out that the foundation laid by Mr. Rolf Hougen for many years, and more recently Mr. Craig Hougen, reminds me of the importance and responsibility I am accepting. Both of these individuals have contributed to the Yukon and Canadian Chambers of Commerce in immeasurable ways. Those are very big footsteps to follow.”
