My family and I moved to Kamloops in 2009 and learned two things very quickly. First, we learned that Kamloops is an unbelievably welcoming community. Secondly, I learned that the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is truly the “hub” of business in Kamloops.
It was my pleasure to join the board of directors in 2014 and to gain a fuller picture of the programs and benefits offered to our members.
Last year, we offered over 60 events designed to provide business owners and employees with opportunities for networking and engagement with other members. We offer membership benefits ranging from local business to business programs to national level benefits programs, designed to save you money. We offer ongoing training and development programs to help you improve your skillset as well as those of your employees. Finally, we advocate for your business to government, municipal, provincial, or federal, on issues ranging from mobile business licensing at a municipal level, right up to small business taxation at a federal level. We help your voice to be heard, by harnessing the impact and influence of thousands of members across the country.
If you have questions about what the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce can do for you and your business, just ask!
And thanks for doing business in Kamloops! It’s people like yourself that help to make this the vibrant (and friendly) community that I love to be a part of. Let us know how we can help.
