WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE?
The Mahone Bay Tourism & Chamber of Commerce is an organization of businesses, professionals, and local volunteers whose goals are to promote local interests, build a healthy economy, and sustain/grow the community’s tourism and business environments. Through the Chamber, there are many ways to do business, build business connections, access business expertise, and market to local, regional, national and international communities.
As a non-profit organization, the Chamber’s strategic focus aligns with Chambers and Board of Trade throughout Canada. The organization’s management is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, elected by the members. Board members represent various industry sectors within the business community. Drawing from the membership, ad hoc committees are formed to manage the Chamber’s core governance functions, such as financial management and special operations/initiatives, such as Festivals and the Visitor Information Centre. The Chamber’s board is committed to continually seek opportunities to increase benefits to the members they serve.
