Annual General Meeting

Join the Board of Trade for our annual general meeting:

Tuesday February 12, 2019
Stettler Regional Board of Trade office (6606 50 Ave)
12:00 noon

* Any business with an active business license is automatically a member of the Board of Trade and able to vote.
Stettler is host to many regional and provincial events throughout the year from various sports tournaments to club meet-ups. Include a coupon to a 'Welcome' package to ensure you're seen .

I n an effort to help promote our local businesses to visitors coming to our community for special events and the need for coupons in participant packages, we would like to help be a one stop shop. If you would like to offer coupons to sports teams and/ or organizations hosting regional and provincial events you are welcome to drop them off at our office (6606 50 Ave). We will add a small label to each coupon based on the organization or event they are for so businesses are still able to track the amount used.

We will be working with the SRC and event organizers to ensure they know they can stop by our office to pick up a 'Welcome' package.
How to participate:

  • We would recommend bringing 5000 coupons

  • Please include any requirements or specifications for including coupons in certain packages.
