Chamber membership on the rise

Benefits to joining ever-growing group in Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs

The Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce held their monthly meeting on Tuesday night, aboard the Laroan for a cruise around southern Harrison Lake. The Laroan is owned by Shoreline Tours owners, Wanda and Steve Dunn. As a Chamber member the company hosts a meeting once per year for all members.

The Chamber reports that they are seeing very strong membership at the moment, with 10 new members over the last quarter.

That brings the total number to 108 businesses, ranging from home-based businesses and services to accommodation and restaurant owners and everything in between.

Of those members, 46 are in Agassiz, 50 are based out of Harrison Hot Springs and a dozen are from outside the Agassiz-Harrison area.

Membership benefits include medical coverage for your employees, discounted fees for banking services, discounts on advertising with The Observer and worthwhile networking and workshop opportunities.

In other Chamber news, the organization will be hosting an upcoming event at Agassiz Speedway on July 7. That night is Pirate and Princess Day, and children are invited to dress as their favourite fairy character. Races start at 7 p.m.
