THE CHAMBER IN 2018
As we wrap up the 2017 chamber year and look towards 2018 there are several new initiatives that are underway to better serve you, our members.
Commencing in January we will introduce our Coffee at the Chamber educational
series, short 1 - 2 hours sessions at the new chamber office. Topics will vary and we will kick off with Facebook for Business on January 23, 2018. The best part is that almost all sessions will be a No Charge event. Schedule
Business Excellence Awards
will return in 2018 and nominations are open to all businesses in our chamber service territory, do nominate a deserving business today.
We are undertaking to host our
Apres 5 networking & mingle program to provide the opportunity for our members to make new business connections in a casual atmosphere at the end of the workday. Watch for event notices in January.
We are introducing a new membership rate scale that will provide the membership an opportunity to further engage in the chamber and receive additional benefits and value according to your needs. But not to worry, the Business Membership rate remains the same, you as a member can select the additional level of involvement you prefer. Information will be provided with your
Renewal Invoice coming in January 2018.
Our event & marketing committee has been working towards a new
Special Event and we believe we have an exciting concept developed. Too early to tell you just what it is exactly however it is intended to celebrate our St. James/Assiniboia heritage. We are looking for key sponsors to kick off this program, contact me at the office if interested.
We are still offering the social activities that we introduced in 2017, the
2nd Annual Curling Funspiel
which is set for March 4 and the causal Golf with the Board will take place in June.
Plus, we will provide all the resources, services and events that you value. We continue to advocate on behalf of the business community and count the revision to the planned Tax Reforms as one of our "wins" in cooperation with the provincial and national chamber organizations.
As your chamber, we appreciate your support and look forward to being of continued service and value through 2018. Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions or business needs that we can assist with.
Our best wishes for this holiday season.
