May Hamm to head CLD
At the Memphremagog MRC CLD’s last board meeting, Magog mayor Vicki May Hamm was elected president and Ayer’s Cliff mayor Alec van Zuiden was elected the vice-president.
“I’m happy to be the president of the CLD following the departure of Jacques Marcoux, who did excellent work,” said Ms. May Hamm. “We have newly elected officials on the CLD board which demonstrates a real enthusiasm to become involved in the organization. I can also count on the support of the new vice-president, Mr. van Zuiden, to assist me. I am therefore confident that all the elements are in place so that different economic partners can work together to innovate and develop the economy of our region and I plan to continue to work towards this.”
