ADVOCACY

Chamber members have several opportunities throughout the year to give input on which governmental business policies are affecting

their operations and how changes could be made.

At the Chamber’s annual Policy Session in March, the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce membership endorses business policy

resolutions, which means the Chamber will be actively engaged in working with government to effect these membership initiated

changes.

Through these policies, the Chamber will work to improve the conditions for

business to flourish and support a healthy community.
