    PRESS RELEASE 

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – February 21, 2019

     

     

    Kimberley Chamber response to 2019 BC Budget

     

    The 2019 Provincial Budget was released Monday and the BC Chamber has replied with the following press release:  http://www.bcchamber.org/advocacy-news/affordability-strategy-welcome-costs-smes-piling

     

    The Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce President, Rachelle Langlois, responded: “The release of the 2019 BC Budget coincided nicely with the arrival of BC Chamber representatives in Kimberley Wednesday morning. Along with the member benefits presentation we had scheduled, our Chamber was able to hear about the BC Chamber’s thoughts and direction regarding the new budget.”

     

    “We are pleased with the support the BC Chamber is showing towards small and medium sized business owners who are the economic drivers in our small communities.  We were also encouraged by the participation of the Kimberley business community members, as having a strong Chamber will ensure we have the voice necessary to continue to have the ear of these influential policy makers.” 

     

    “Gathering feedback from the business community is one of our primary goals in the next few months, along with increasing our Chamber membership.  We want to hear from our businesses to ensure our Chamber is effectively representing their needs, not just on a local or community level, but also at regional and provincial levels as well since this budget will directly impact our members.”

  • Becoming a Trusted Advisor - Jeff Mowatt

    Event Date: 15-May-2019

    Posted by Kimberley Chamber | on 26-Mar-2019

    Proudly sponsored by the Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, May 15th at Centre 64 in Kimberley. 

    Smart business people know that your options to stand out in the marketplace are limited... cut prices? Not very profitable. Improve product quality? Certainly, but that can take substantial time and money. The fastest, most cost-effective way to differentiate yourself is to focus on your service. Customer service can no longer be merely average or simply friendly; it needs to be remark-able. That means you and your team members need to be seen as Trusted Advisors. Here's your opportunity to make that happen for your team...

    Seminar times:

    Morning session: Check-in: 8:30am-9:00. Program starts: 9:00am-12:00 Noon

    OR

    Afternoon session: Check-in: 1:00pm-1:30pm. Program starts: 1:30pm-4:30pm


    Registration:

    Standard (at the door or up to 6 days prior to seminar date) - $275
