Being in business can be challenging. Let’s face it, generating sales, meeting payroll, serving customers, maintaining inventory, and doing all of this well enough to earn sufficient profit to keep operating takes a lot of skill and energy.
But what makes it easier is being connected to a business organization that understands those concerns, and works hard on your behalf.
The Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce is an affiliate member of the BC Chamber of Commerce & Canadian Chamber of Commerce…. By joining us, not only do you align yourself with hundreds of other businesses in our local community but thousands across the country.
Every dollar saved is a dollar earned. Through our affiliations, your membership unlocks savings on everything from payment processing, fuel costs and exclusive offers from fellow members – plus group health insurance that can’t be beat! Learn more.
