Our Member Benefits
FREE ‘Business Anonymous’
We host four of these support programs annually. They are 1 hour programs that take place after business hours. We bring in local business owners to talk and answer questions. Each session is based around a theme: Life Balancing, Finances, Marketing, Staffing, Branding, Community etc... It gives our members a chance to learn from each other, meet and network with new people and build a support group within our own community.
WEBSITE: We offer opportunities for our members to place information about their business on our Website. This promotes online exposure and gives your company a more competitive edge.
SPORSORSHIP: A great way for your business to get more exposure throughout the community is through sponsorship at Chamber Events.
Business Oriented and Community Driven Events
We organize, plan and execute events that help boost, promote or celebrate our business community. Our annual events are our Spring Trade Show & Sale usually held in March and Railway Days which is usually held in July. As a member you will receive early bird application notice to register a booth for the Trade Show and first dibs on sponsorship for Railway Days events. Paid members receive reduced ticket prices to events.
Strong Voice of Business:
Our main purpose is to be the Voice of our Businesses. As such, at every Chamber meeting we have City representatives who attend. This allows our board to bring any questions or concerns from our members directly to City council to be addressed. We also have strong working relationships with SPREDA, Tourism Melville, the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
When our Chamber office is contacted with questions about businesses in the area we refer potential customers to our chamber members first!
Our members receive a Chamber package annually which contains the names and contact informaion of our Chamber members.
When a member is unable to provide a service or product for a customer they are encouraged to refer business to another member.
