The Calgary Chamber – Beyond membership
Success in your business is the direct result of what you know – and who you know. Your active participation in the Calgary Chamber gives a big boost to both. The Chamber is the largest and most influential business organization in Calgary – and the one that gives you the greatest access to new clients, new ideas, and other resources that will help grow your business, and solve some of the challenges your business encounters.
The Calgary Chamber is the original social network. For more than 120 years, the Calgary Chamber has been Calgary’s main connector of people, ideas and stories. We’ve facilitated meetings, debates and gatherings with some of the brightest minds in Calgary to solve business challenges, and push the social and political agenda in the way necessary to make Calgary a better place for business. When an organization joins the Calgary Chamber, it becomes involved and engaged in a way that goes beyond membership. They become part of an organization dedicated to making our members’ business more successful. To achieve this goal, we strive to provide our members with the following benefits.
Focused influence – Ensuring the voice and concerns of Calgary businesses are heard and acted upon by key policy makers at all levels of government.
Meaningful connections – Providing matchmaking opportunities that allow businesses to network and develop prosperous partnerships.
Smarter tools – Delivering services, programs and partnerships that help businesses overcome their toughest problems.
Fresh ideas – Keeping members ahead of the curve with the latest economic, workplace and market trends information, and what it means for their business.
