Happy New Year!

What are you most looking forward to this year, professionally or personally?

Here at the Chamber, our 2021 focus is to continue supporting our members by providing opportunities and resources to help you grow, navigate difficult times, and maximize the new (and changing) normal.

We're launching two new exciting opportunities this year - a referral program and virtual event sponsorship package!

Member Referral Program | Be rewarded when you share the benefits of membership with other local businesses and entrepreneurs! With each successful referral, you will have your choice of $50 off your membership renewal in 2022 or a $50 gift card to any of our participating member businesses. Contact us for more information or to make a referral today!

Event Sponsorship Program | Gain six months of exposure for one low cost! The sponsorship package includes:
  • Recognition at all virtual Chamber events (7 events minimum) from January to June
  • Hyper-linked logo in event invitations
  • Hyper-linked logo on our website
  • Tagged logo on social media with the screenshot after each event

Space is limited - only 20 sponsorships available. Increase your exposure to our extended network for just $100*! But hurry, reserve your spot by January 18 for the early-bird price of $75*! Contact us for more information or to become a sponsor! *Prices subject to HST.

Do you need more masks to keep your staff and customers safe? We have non-medical masks available for free to local businesses generously donated by MedSup Canada and made available by the Town of Grimsby. Email us today to arrange a pick-up time!

If there is anything we can do to support you, please don't hesitate to reach out - we always want to hear from you!

Stay well. Stay safe.

Coffee & #ConnectingGrimsby

Connections grow businesses.

Let’s start off the new year by making connections and growing our professional networks! A strong network will help establish product and service partnerships, more referrals, and a support system.

Join your Chamber colleagues at the next Coffee and #ConnectingGrimsby Virtual Networking Event on Friday, January 22 at 8 AM.

It’s an excellent opportunity to engage your business peers to celebrate your successes, help you navigate the unique challenges the pandemic presents, share what you're looking forward to this year, or get to know the local business community better.
