Stephen is all about the business. It is his major passion and talent in life. As our former Chamber president, he set the bar high to revive a languishing organization sorely in need of strong leadership and new blood. No job was ever too small or trivial for Stephen to tackle - he even prepared food for our Speaker Series Dinners. He spearheaded many events and led the way in new and exciting sponsorships of community events such as Canada Day, All Candidates meetings, RiverMonster Swim Club, the Great Fraser River Salmon BBQ Competition, Our Last Hope Animal Rescue and many others. Stephen's guidance and hard work truly fulfilled our three primary goals: To inspire, to involve and to inform. The inspiration behind his tireless work on behalf of the business community in Hope -- his family. For when businesses flourish, families flourish. Towns grow and people prosper. And that's what business is all about to Stephen.
