Jesse Sidhu, Executive Director
"I'm excited and honored to lead The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce as their new Executive Director! Chambers of Commerce will play a pivotal role in building a vision for the post-pandemic economy, by collaborating and partnering with businesses, community partners, nonprofits, and policymakers. Now is the time for open innovation and to seize new opportunities.
I thrive on creating and nurturing long-term, collaborative relationships, and opportunities.
When people are connected to the right resources and connections and participate in their community, good things happen.
As a Rotarian for the past 9 years, I also have a passion to help nonprofits and charities with their fundraising, marketing, and event planning (online or in-person). Through Rotary, we have also created a Financial Literacy program for high school students and young adults and an entrepreneurship program for elementary students in grades 4-7 that I am really excited about!
I love face-to-face meetings, so feel free to reach out and let’s connect over a coffee (or a wine), whatever you fancy.
PS – I really, really like to DJ, music is one of my biggest passions!"

Sandeep Dosanjh, Communications & Event Co-ordinator
Sandeep is very excited to be working for the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce with a great team alongside her. Born and raised in Mission, it has always been Sandeep’s aspiration to live and work in the same city with a meaningful job that keeps her engaged with what’s happening in Mission.
Sandeep has obtained her Bachelors of Science in environmental biology from the University of the Fraser Valley. During her time there, she worked for the marketing department in the Abbotsford campus and at UFV India in Chandigarh. Sandeep enjoys playing pickleball and solo-travelling; some places she’s been to include Colombia, the Philippines, and India.
However, no matter where she goes or temporarily calls home, she will always eagerly return to her hometown of Mission. You can find Sandeep volunteering at the Mission Folk Festival selling raffle tickets clad in the iconic fairy wings.
