Committed Business Owners
In the past three years, the Chamber has been dominated by business owners focused on making Hinton a business-friendly community. This Board understands how challenging it is to run a business and has maintained a consultative relationship with the Town of Hinton. This has allowed our business community a voice in municipal decision-making as we have successfully implemented an Offsite Levy Bylaw to really clarify development risk and have had input on the new Land-Use Bylaw to ensure a forward-looking law.
Nathan and his wife own Logic Control ltd, an electrical and instrumentation company that has been in business here for over 15 years.
He is a firm believer that if you want to make changes you have to get involved, it takes a team of likeminded people to accomplish this, which is what led him to become involved in the Chamber.
