MEET THE BOARD
Bio coming soon!
Ryan Tracy - Vice President
On behalf on Mill Run Golf Club, I’m excited to join the Board of Directors of the Uxbridge Chamber of Commerce. Though I’m relatively new to town, I have grown up in Durham Region and appreciate the importance of local business. I’ve returned to the region from Miramichi, New Brunswick where I managed a golf club and sat on the Board of the Chamber of Commerce within town. Working the last 20 years in the club industry and owning my own business has helped me develop a passion for entrepreneurship and servicing those around me.
I have been able to gain non-profit experience with the PGA of Canada, the Canadian Society of Club Manager and Rotary. I’m proud to represent the Chamber wherever it may take us while strengthening local connections through various activities and get togethers. If there’s anything I or Mill Run can do for you, please don’t hesitate to reach me at email@example.com.

This is in large part due to the wonderful and welcoming Uxbridge community. My journey from India to Canada started in 2017. This past year in Canada has brought me many challenges and new experiences. Even though I was in a new place meeting new people, it did not take long for me to call Uxbridge home.

Terry Barrett - Director
Living in Uxbridge since 1966, I have always been an entrepreneur at heart. I built my own ski tow on our farm at age 16 and went on to building handcrafted Log and Timber Homes from age 18-24. In my youth I had enjoyed dirt biking and supported myself by cutting a few lawns around town. That lead to a professional motocross career post-secondary school which lead to promoting Motocross Racing events throughout the 80's and 90's. One of these events was held in Elgin Park and attracted riders from all over the world with 10k spectators. I also managed a high end Cabinet making and Custom home building business during that time. After an early retirement in 2005 I moved back into a more sedentary role as a Financial Consultant with I.G. Wealth Management and now help clients manage their own risks. Something I seem to know a lot about.
