The Ladysmith Downtown Business Association has elected a new board of directors and as one of its first initiatives hosted a workshop with a leading consultant in how to grow small and medium-sized businesses.

Over 30 people attended the first of three seminars by Clemens Rettich at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery on Tuesday morning.

Newly-elected president and publisher of the Ladysmith Chronicle Andrea Rosato-Taylor said LDBA is focused on creating a “vibrant downtown.”

“The board is passionate about our mandate to create a marketing plan promoting Ladysmith beyond our borders,” she said. “You will also see more collaboration between our organization and the Chamber of Commerce. Our belief is working together is the necessary energy behind building success.

The new LDBA board includes Rosato-Taylor, Sandra Narduzzi, Jim Scott, Rich Huggins, Paul Mycroft and directors Erika Massong and Kathy Holmes.
