Mr. Andy Chan is the new President and is also the Association’s first second generation President. “My vision as new President will be to see the Association expand its footprint across the GTA’s diverse business community, as well as to successfully identify and further integrate the various fast-paced and growing municipalities in the Region, including Vaughan,” said Mr. Chan at the inauguration gala.
