HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, August 7, 2018 – The Greater Burnside Business Association (GBBA) has relaunched, rebranded and is working to increase membership.  The GBBA intends on making noise this upcoming year with a new logo, website, restructured board, strategic partnerships and an innovative membership drive.

New Board Members

The GBBA is pleased to welcome Dee Deuville as the new chair of the board. Dee has been a member and director with the GBBA since 2005.  The board also welcomed six new members, Amy Gibson Saab of BOYNECLARKE LLP, Kelly Lohnes of Bonshaw Media, Cathy Deagle Gammon of DASC Industries, Glynis Mullen of Weldon McInnis, Sara Rose Condenuevo of AC Hunter Tellier Belgrave Adamson and Keith McKay of Sun Life Financial.

“I am honoured and excited to represent the Greater Burnside Business Association as Chair of the Board,” says Dee Deuville. “We recently welcomed six new directors to our 11-member board with the goal of taking the organization into a new strategic direction.”

Strategic Partnerships

As part of that strategic direction, the GBBA has partnered with Dartmouth based Law Firm, BOYNECLARKE LLP, who will be the presenting sponsor for the 2018/2019 season. 

“This year our goal is to provide valuable educational sessions to our membership, through our monthly luncheon series,” says Deuville. “Partnering with BOYNECLARKE LLP made sense, and we are excited to have them on board and look forward to working with them to elevate our luncheon series.”
