|We will speak in a positive, but yet forthright manner on business issues for positive, incremental change at the local, regional, provincial & federal levels. A key opportunity to build on and enhance the Camrose Chamber’s sphere of influence, profile and voice is to actively work in conjunction with the Alberta & Canadian Chambers of Commerce.||Our strength & resources come from our members and are entrusted in the hands of those members that are chosen to lead and govern the Chamber. Organizations never stand still…they are growing & expanding in strength and influence OR shrinking and contracting. Strong leadership will build on a solid foundation of past success and growth.||The Chamber will promote our community as a great place to visit, live, work, shop, play and invest. We have a bright economic future and a fantastic sense of community. Camrose boasts all of the amenities of a large, dynamic, cosmopolitan city, while retaining the hospitality and safety of a small town. The unique blend of an urban centre next to the relaxed country setting in Camrose County offers a quality of life second to none.||We will focus our resources & efforts on strategies & programs that maximize the value created and return for the members of the Camrose & District Chamber of Commerce while working toward our mission and goals.|
