Dear Chamber Members and Partners,
These are challenging times for Canadians and residents of countries around the world. The Federal, Provincial, and Municipal Governments have taken broad sweeping measures to protect Canadians from the COVID – 19 virus.
The Camrose & District Chamber of Commerce will take all necessary steps to protect and assist our business community. This includes protecting our Membership, Board of Directors and Staff with policies and procedures to mitigate health and financial issues to the best of our abilities.
COVID – 19 has wide-sweeping effects on our business community and every day we see new policy and procedural changes as this unprecedented pandemic affects company operations.
We at the chamber understand how devastating this pandemic is on your business and we have met as a board to agree on the chamber’s operations going forward:
Our staff are always available via email and phone Monday through Friday, staff may be in the building at times, but the physical office will be closed to the public
The Chamber Board and Staff would like to assure you that we value your membership and all the goods and services you provide to our community.
