Chamber of Commerce or Board of Trade is a non-profit action organization designed to

meet community or area needs. It is a voluntary organization of progressive individuals and

businesses that work together to advance the commercial, financial, industrial and

civic interests of a community.

WHAT DOES A CHAMBER DO?

The Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business.

The Chamber of Commerce is a catalyst — a common vehicle mobilizing enlightened members

from all segments of the business community to work together for the common good of

the total community. With the aim of achieving economic success, staff, volunteers and

business people strive to keep their area’s economic conditions at a level where businesses

and residents willingly and enthusiastically risk their capital in their community in the hope of making

a profit. Everything else the Chamber does is a means to an end (events, mixers, fundraisers and meetings).

WHO FUNDS THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE?

The Chamber of Commerce is funded by the membership, revenues from leases in our Landmark Building and Alaska Highway House, sponsorship of our Chamber Car, and events such as luncheons and our Small Business Christmas Party

WHO RUNS THE CHAMBER?

A Board of Directors, elected by the Chamber of Commerce’s members, runs the organization.

The Board, serving as volunteers, sets the policies and goals of the organization.

Staff -Executive Director and Assistant to the Exective Director are responsible for completing the objectives and goals of the Board

WHAT DO THE VOLUNTEERS DO?

Volunteers provide the ideas, the drive, the goals, the funds and the voluntary services

to keep the Chamber of Commerce motivated and operating.

DO MEMBERS EVER DISAGREE WITH WHAT THE CHAMBER DOES?

The only way for the Chamber to avoid disagreement on some ground is to do nothing at all,

or do only those rare things in which everybody agrees. But that would mean a meaningless

or feeble program of activity.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF MEMBERSHIP?

The major benefit of membership is the Chamber of Commerce acts as the unified voice

of the area businesses, including industry, retail and professional firms. Chambers of Commerce

also provide their members with value-added programs available only to members

(i.e. merchant rates, comprehensive group insurance, courier and natural gas to name a few).

The savings from these programs often offsets the cost of membership. Strong membership

involvement in its activities will increase the impact and effectiveness of the organization.

Chamber of Commerce membership is an investment in the present and future of the

individual’s and the community’s welfare.

WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF A CHAMBER TO THE COMMUNITY?

In any community, it is from the profitable operation of business that all other benefits result.

Only by succeeding in this fundamental goal can a community provide the jobs and

produce the wealth to finance all of the cultural, charitable and various other

needs a community is faced with everyday.
