Business Advocacy Committee

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.

We fundraise throughout the year to pay for the upkeep of these statues. Funds raised are matched by the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce for a maximum of $10,000 each year.
