At the Annual General Meeting of the Netherlands-Canada Chamber of Commerce, members voted to appoint Jelke Schaafsma, CEO of Valumaat, to the Board of Directors and to the position of Chairman of the Board.
Interim Chairman, Julie Allen said "I am really pleased that Jelke has decided to take this position. He has a wealth of practical experience having started his own business in Canada, and has been a long time supporter of the Chamber."
In his welcoming letter to members, Jelke states that "it is an honour and a pleasure for me to accept the position of Chairman of the Board of the NCCC and bring my contribution to this great adventure".
This year, the Netherlands-Canada Chamber of Commerce (NCCC) is celebrating 25 years of being registered as a non-profit organization with the Kamer van Koophandel. But of course, it’s history stretches back much further.
Jelke welcomes the input of members, affiliates and other interested parties saying; "together we will continue to professionalize and grow the NCCC and ensure its future for the next 25 years".
