    I enjoyed the All Candidates Speed Campaigning Meet & Greet last night , thank you. Great concept , speed dating was a very efficient way to get through a lot of candidates. In addition, it was a learning opportunity  for both sides of the table. I received excellent insight and a few wise words of valuable advice. Please share this brief note of gratitude with your fellow members and , in particular thank you to you and the organizers of this worthwhile event. I was also very impressed with the Be Bold Penticton publication.

    Belonging to The Chamber is a non-negotiable.  We take advantage of space for our business cards and brochures.  We use the business directory as a resource and for advertising.  The newly renovated web site is easy to use.  Business after Business is fun.  But, the most important aspect of belonging to The Chamber is supporting our local community, which drives and supports economic growth.

    Bi-weekly Business after Business meetings give us great opportunities for networking with other local businesses. The Chamber of Commerce has supported us in getting the word out about our newdistillery and we learned a lot about other businesses with many of whom we now work together. The BC Chamber has helped us with advice, writing press releases, preparing media article and representing Penticton businesses on a provincial level.

    The best reasons to be a Chamber member are to network with other members, and to provide services to the business community. Supporting the Chamber Business after Business, attending luncheons and seminars, as well as meeting elected officials is very rewarding. Being active in other organizations can be an asset for knowing so many Chamber members too!
