Our chamber board continues to advocate for business on the municipal and provincial stage.

We accomplish through letters of support, information gathering and face to face contact to help resolve their issues. On occasion, these concerns are handled through advocacy by the Board Policy Committee.

Annually our advocacy resolutions are presented at the BC chamber AGM.

Acceptance here changes the resolution into a policy, which then forms a part of the road map from B.C. business to the government.

The dedication of our board volunteers, driven by a desire to get the best for and out of our community, has resulted in our chamber being seen as a force in provincially.

Chamber members are invited to enter into our general meeting monthly draws for a chance to win a complimentary Chamber Chatter in the Tribune.
