Prince George, Feb 20 2017 – The province – and City of Prince George – have proclaimed February 20-24, 2017 Chamber of Commerce Week to recognize the unwavering commitment of your Prince George Chamber of Commerce in supporting local businesses, boosting economic development opportunities and providing vital resources for businesses in our community.
This week, for example, the Prince George Chamber is hosting two events. The first – tomorrow at 5pm – is an info session on its upcoming familiarization tour of India. The 10-day, all-inclusive trip is perfect for those looking to make international business connections, and those looking for safe, affordable group travel. Then on Thursday, the Chamber will help local businesses access apprentice training opportunities by hosting a “Business After 5” networking event with the Industry Training Authority (ITA). Professionals will meet up at 5pm at The Twisted Cork to learn more about ITA’s resources, and to get to know each other better. From networking to advocacy to group insurance, the Chamber helps local businesses grow and prosper.
The Prince George Chamber is also contributing on a provincial level as well. As a member of the BC Chamber network, we helped to create recommendations that were included in a new report by the Independent Commission on Tax Competitiveness. This report, which compiled suggestions on how to further enhance tax competitiveness for businesses in B.C., was presented to the Minister of Finance. Recommendations included a call for a made-in-B.C. value-added tax, a policy passed by the BC Chamber’s province-wide membership.
So as B.C. celebrates Chamber Week, don’t miss the opportunity to swing by your local Chamber, join in on some Chamber Week events, and celebrate the many ways that B.C.’s Chambers strengthen our communities by getting business done!
