On November 7th Chamber staff and some of our Directors headed out for our first Membership Drive. This was a great opportunity to meet local business owners in person to discuss our Chamber and the benefits of becoming a member. We found the Membership Drive was a great opportunity for businesses to bring up concerns, ideas and issues that are important to You - the business owner. As well, we signed-up new members too - welcome to you!
We received great feedback from our members and future members alike. This feedback is very important for our Board and staff to develop our Chamber into the right model to serve the needs of businesses in Vanderhoof. Our objectives to promote local business here and elsewhere, advocate for your business, and provide valuable benefits members want remain top priority.
If you are interested in having us come into your business to discuss Chamber benefits and what the Vanderhoof Chamber is working on, please let us know. We are happy to come to meet you in your work place.
Our next Membership Drive will be at the beginning of February. We will be reaching out to businesses outside of the downtown core, connecting with industry leaders in our community in forestry, agriculture and fisheries. Contact us if you would like to be on this list!
On November 14th we held our Christmas Open House at our new office space in the Co-op Mall. The Open House was well attended by current, past and potential members, along with our staff and directors. Everyone enjoyed the refreshments, snacks and conversation. Thank you to everyone that attended!
Our new office is shaping up to be a great working space for our growing Chamber. We have local art hanging on our walls, which makes the space bright and fun. We also have a new TV in the office advertising our current members, thank you to
