What Does the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce Do?
Jul 5, 2016
The Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce, incorporated in March 27, 1946, is a not-for-profit organization representing the interests and concerns of local businesses. Through the Gibsons Chamber, members access benefits, partnerships, marketing, and networking opportunities.
Membership represents a business’ stake in an organization that is the Voice of Business in Gibsons & District. The Chamber has the ability to effect positive change by representing the interests of the local business community in discussions with all parties, both inside and outside the region, and particularly with local, provincial and federal governments.
In addition, membership is the key that opens the door to a variety of value added programs that support business including the Chamber Group Insurance Plan, Spark Home & Property & Liability Insurance, special incentives from other members, networking and training opportunities. These valued added programs have the potential to generate savings that far exceed the cost of membership.
Most importantly, the Chamber of Commerce advocates to local, Provincial and Federal governments on behalf of its members to ensure that their concerns are being heard. The Gibsons Chamber of Commerce gives the business community a voice.
We place a strong emphasis on supporting the interests of small business; small businesses account for an estimated 98% of registered businesses in BC. 95% of businesses employ fewer than 20 people.
