Benefits of being a Chamber Member

Being a member of the Drumheller Chamber allows you to be actively involved in the Drumheller business community.  Your local Chamber provides advocacy on behalf of its members, as well as important networking events that allow you to get out in the community, introduce your business, and get noticed.  The value of this is immeasurable.

 

Advocacy

 

Local. Provincial. National.  The Chamber network is the most powerful voice for getting your message out, and creating change.

In 2014, the Business Advocacy Committee was established to play an advocacy role on behalf of business members in the community, and to work with business and government to develop and implement policies designed to ensure Drumheller and district provides an atmosphere that is conducive to business and sustainable community growth. The Committee meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 12:00 pm, in the Chamber board room. All Chamber members are welcome.

 

Value Added Programs

 

Chamber members have access to a plethora of member benefit programs, including merchant services, insurance, shipping, fuel, marketing, and more! Find out more on what is available for your business, and start saving money for your business.  In MANY cases, your savings from using these programs will more than cover the costs of your Chamber of Commerce membership!!

 

Networking

 

Probably the most valuable part of Chamber membership is the networking benefits.  As a member you can attend well planned networking functions that allow you to get out of your office and meet new clients, new businesses, and develop new relationships. Examples of Chamber-hosted events include:

  • Golf Tournament
  • July 1st Parade
  • Spring Expo trade show
  • Women in Business Mixer
  • Business Excellence Awards Gala
  • Along with seminars, workshops, meetings, the list goes on!

As a member of the Chamber of Commerce you will receive a copy of our electronic newsletter, Chamber Connections, ten times a year. The newsletter features an assortment of articles to keep you up-to-date on what is happening at the DDCC and around our community.
