St. Ann Chamber elects new president

St Ann Chamber of Commerce - The Gleaner - July 23, 1999 OCHO RIOS, St. Ann: ENDING MONTHS of speculation, the St. Ann Chamber yesterday elected Ocho Rios businesswoman Eva Myers as its new president at the organisation’s annual general meeting at the Almond Tree Restaurant.

Ms. Myers, a vice-president under the previous administration and owner of the popular Evita’s Italian Restaurant, succeeded Joe Issa who resigned after two years as head of the St. Ann Chamber.

She was elected unopposed, thus putting to rest the rumours that were circulating that several directors had a change of heart about her candidacy and were planning to throw their support behind another prominent business person.

Ms. Myers, in thanking members for their vote of confidence, promised to continue on the road that was paved by her predecessors and that she was honoured to be the person chosen to lead the organization into the new millennium.

Dean Clarke was returned as first vice-president while director Andrew Grant was elevated to second vice-president.
