Chamber plans information-packed meeting

You do not have to be a Chamber member to attend the open general meetings

Editor, The Times:

Another season passes and with that comes a time for Chamber of Commerce members to meet to discuss Chamber issues that have arisen during the fall.

Your Chamber directors are again offering something a little different at our Nov. 18 general meeting – scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Community Resource Center (located by Raft River School).

We have been approached to discuss the following: the impact and developments with regard to the Trans Mountain oil pipeline; an update on our ‘walkabout’ with District of Clearwater during Small Business Week; some very important information about how your land taxes are determined and what you can do about that if you don’t agree, and (are you ready for this?) a conversation with District of Clearwater’s sports coordinator Mel Romeo and how your business can and does benefit from having sports teams come into our community and how you can become involved with upcoming events.

To this end we have approached some local people of interest to come and share their views. This line up will include our elected Chamber executive, a representative from Trans Mountain Pipeline; the CAO and the director of finance of the District Municipality of Clearwater, and the community sports coordinator.

This will be an information-packed event, so we will provide some coffee and goodies to facilitate the networking that is sure to involve conversations with these folks after the presentations.

Please understand that you do not have to be a Chamber member to attend the open general meetings of the Chamber. Everyone is welcome.

All Chamber members are welcome to ask to be appointed to the board. We do have a couple of vacancies and would welcome some dedicated hard working individuals to our dynamic team. This term would end at the annual general meeting/election, which is generally held in March of each year.

Cheryl Thomas, director


Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce
