As the Voice Of Business, our Chamber currently has a membership of over 800 local businesses, which equates to about 12,000 employees. As well, close to 150 business people volunteer their time working on our various committees, Executive and Board of Directors.
The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce is active in our region, working as The Voice of Business to advocate for you and to provide opportunities to connect with important officials, business leaders, peers and prospective clients.
At the Chamber, we strive to provide our members with channels to have influence with all levels of government.
Through numerous meetings with government representatives, we are sharing the message: Lethbridge and the Southern Alberta region has tremendous potential in the national and international agri-food and food processing industry.
Last year we welcomed 120 new members to connect with peers, other business leaders, and potential clients.
To facilitate this process we offer a number of network building events such as Membership Mixers, Golf Tournament and often we combine these with educational opportunities provided by Opportunity South, BizSmarts or Lunch & Learns. We also love the opportunity to recognize greatness with our Annual Business of the Year Awards Gala, Top 40 Under Forty and the President’s Dinner & Volunteer Appreciation Night.
Finally we offer members the advantage of discounts to reduce the cost of doing business, to encourage support of local businesses and to help provide employee retention incentives. The Chamber Group Insurance Plan is very successful in Lethbridge and provides a great advantage to our members. We also provide marketing opportunities online, through social media, in the Voice of Business weekly newsletter and at our events.
