Chamber welcomes new members

Williams Lake Chamber and District Chamber of Commerce shares latest news in its monthly column.

The Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce welcomes its newest members Blos Mechanical, Canim Lake Resort, Celtic Engineering Ltd., Fraser Bevz Broughton Chartered Accountants LLP, Mountain Spirit Outfitters, Mulberry Lane Gift Studio, and Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way.

Exciting to see our gala 19th Annual Business Excellence Awards evening on March 8 shaping up to be another special evening for everyone!

Nominations are starting to come in with the deadline to nominate Feb. 7.

Our theme is an Italian theme of “That’s Amore.”

Thank you to all sponsors who got on board early for our one and only fundraisers for the chamber.

Nomination forms are online at www.williamslakechamber.com; Community Futures Development Corporation, Save-On Foods and the Chamber office.

We have a number of benefits that will help you daily in your business as well as your bottom line.

Here is some of what we offer; fuel discount programs, training for your staff; meetings offering high profile, interesting and informed guest speakers, advocacy and support from our volunteers and staff.

Our year end was November 2013 and membership fees were due Dec. 1.

We have had a very productive year not only in the area of advocacy but other areas and the result has been an increase in costs.

We sincerely thank those that have renewed for the coming year.

All member information will be updated on our website and our e-mail database will be adjusted accordingly.

If members have not received an invitation by e-mail for our luncheon, please let us know so we can check our database and make any changes necessary.

Our 16-member volunteer board recently spent the day reviewing and updating the strategic plan and identifying our priorities.

The draft will be ready for final approval by the board in February.

Feb. 17 is Chamber of Commerce Week in the province, an opportunity for Chambers of Commerce across the province to demonstrate the outstanding value we provide to our communities.

This value comes in the form of benefits and services to stimulate local economies, direct community promotion and support, and engaging in an important multi-level advocacy role which benefits the entire province.

Chambers of Commerce are community leaders in action.

Chamber of Commerce Week recognizes and applauds this important contribution, and brings further awareness about the Chamber Network’s influence and importance to members of the public and chamber members alike.

We are currently seeking partnerships with our members to celebrate success and achievements during this celebration week.

Our monthly meetings have sponsorship opportunities for all members to profile what you do. Please call us to discuss details.

Chamber meetings offer businesses the opportunity to meet other businesses.

Chamber Chatter Williams Lake.
