Challenge 500! The adventure begins.

 The gauntlet has been dropped at this year's AGM. As President of the Assiniboia Chamber of Commerce I have challenged myself to increase the chamber membership to 500 within one year.

I expect to be able to report at the next AGM in May 2017 that we have achieved this goal. Of course this cannot be achieved without the help of you the membership. Your referrals and recommendations of fellow businesses who can benefit and achieve value in our organization are critical to achieving this target.

We will provide updates as we proceed, but do send in those referrals - who knows there may even be referral rewards?   Contact r
