Editor, The Times:
Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce directors are actively working on your businesses’ behalf to promote business in the valley.
We also operate the information desk at the Wells Gray Infocenter (the BC Parks building beside Gerry the Moose at the roundabout) that assists tourists and locals alike find their way around the area. We are grateful for the grants that allow us to employ the info desk manager and two students over the summer.
As a director of the Clearwater and District Chamber I also represent local businesses on the board of Tourism Wells Gray and the Forestry Working Group. It is my privilege to serve our local businesses in this volunteer capacity, and I welcome constructive input, as I want to be your voice at these meetings. Other directors sit at other community tables, as your business voice. General Chamber meetings are open to all members and their guests.
Map boards – located on the boulevard at the Brookfield Shopping Center and the Sportsplex – are an excellent way to feature the location of Chamber of Commerce businesses. This is a voluntary piece for businesses to consider as part of their promotional portfolio.
Local Chamber businesses that have chosen to support the Chamber map are featured on the new blue 2014 paper map that is available at each of these businesses as well as through the Chamber info desk, located at the Infocenter.
Business input is always welcome at the Chamber. Do take a moment to look at the Clearwater and District Chamber’s website. All contact information is available there. One of our long time directors, Anne Krawec, is often at the Chamber office at the Community Resource Center and can help you with membership and business inquiries.
Emails are also welcome.
Local businesses that would like to join the Chamber can do so in person by visiting our office at the CRC building or by contacting one of the directors. If you would like to become a director, let’s talk. If you would like to become a member, let’s talk. If you are a member and would like to express your opinion on business in the valley, let’s talk. The Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce is open for business.
