Calgary Chamber marks 130th anniversary by expanding membership accessibility for local businesses
Calgary, January 12, 2021 – To mark its 130th anniversary and in recognition of the challenging reality for businesses, the Calgary Chamber of Commerce is expanding accessibility for local businesses to experience the strength of the Chamber community.
Founded in 1891 – three years before Calgary officially became a city – the Chamber has been at the heart of Calgary business for 130 years. Its purpose is to be a voice for businesses in Calgary, to provide growth opportunities, and to advocate for public policies that enable their success.
“Calgary’s business community is stronger when we face our challenges together – whether they come in the shape of a historic flood, persistent economic headwinds, or a global pandemic,” says Murray Sigler, interim CEO at the Calgary Chamber.
Current and new members of the Calgary Chamber will receive a 50 per cent discount on their annual membership for 2021. New members can access this discount from January through March, and current members will receive it whenever they renew in 2021.
As a part of the Chamber network, businesses in Calgary can stay connected and be supported through virtual events, access to resources, and focused advocacy at all levels of government.
“Like so many birthdays during this pandemic, we’re celebrating ours a little differently this year,” says Brent Cooper, Board Chair of the Calgary Chamber. “Whether you are considering joining, or you are already part of our community, we look forward to connecting with you and supporting you.”
The Calgary Chamber is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan business organization. For 130 years, the Chamber has worked to build a business community that nourishes, powers, and inspires the world.
