Why Become A Member of the Chamber of Commerce?
The Peace River & District Chamber of Commerce offers many different ways to have your voice heard in the business community, in the municipal government, the province of Alberta, and the federal government. While Peace River is a small community in comparison to the larger metropolises of Alberta, we still maintain excellent standing with the local government offices, the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. We hold 6 votes in the Alberta General Meeting, giving you a chance to voice your concerns and work for the betterment of the community.
In addition to having your voice heard, the Chamber offers plenty of opportunities to network and socialize with fellow business owners. From our General Membership Meetings to the events we host - your participation will dictate the value you get from your membership. At the Chamber of Commerce office, we hope that your interest demonstrates your willingness to engage other business owners and participate as much as possible in our events!
We also promote our members! Our website is highly trafficked and has received glowing feedback from those who have visited. We also list our businesses in our Business Directory, which is a bi-annual publication that markets Peace River, our members, tourism and our events.
