BUSINESS TRACK: President’s message

Mission Chamber of Commerce wants to hear from local businesses

In 1893 the Mission City Board of Trade (now the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce) was established by Harry French. Since then, we have developed and grown with the business community.

Through a survey, you have let us know that you agree we should celebrate our 120 years in the community. An extraordinary event and commemorative items topped your list of expectations. Nine members have offered to form a task force, to help the board develop a plan for this momentous milestone.

At the end of this month, I will be attending the BC Chamber of Commerce AGM, along with director Ann Harper. We will be presenting both our provincial and federal Fraser river management policies, and seeking support from the chamber network. It will be the first time the Mission Chamber has developed and proposed policies for adoption on the provincial level. I am looking forward to reporting the successful adoption of our policies in our June newsletter.

Whether it is participating in task forces, volunteering at events or simply participating in surveys, your voice is ours. Over the course of the next year, I look forward to enhancing opportunities for more of your input.
