The South Shuswap is large in area and many of our members are busy working and travelling throughout the region. It's not always convenient to spend the added time driving to a Chamber office when you can do your business by phone, email or online.
Our Directors and our Executive Director Karen Brown want to be out in our region meeting with business owners and the public-at-large. They are working hard on initiatives that will strengthen our community and they are working tirelessly advocating for the better of community on a variety of issues.
Nominated by our peers and awarded the Community Building Communications Award at the BC Chamber Executives Conference in 2019, the Chamber seeks to make commerce happen through business growth and attraction, as well as the advocacy efforts that help improve business in the region. Our strength lies in the number and diversity of our membership!
The South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce is incorporated under The Board of Trade Act. All necessary documentation is filed annually with Corporations Canada.
The South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce is a non-partisan organization established to foster, promote and improve business development in a responsible manner while providing value to membership through benefits, partnerships, communications, advocacy and initiatives.
How would we define ourselves? The answer would be that we are a "chamber of change." The change comes from a constant transformation of the way we live and work in the South Shuswap. You could consider the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce to be 'cutting edge' in that we are the only chamber within British Columbia to be entirely virtual-in-nature. In fact, at the 2015 BC Chamber of Commerce AGM held in Prince George, the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce was given a special award in recognition of their forward-thinking business model and for bringing the Chamber back to the South Shuswap community under the new format, after having been on a hiatus for over a year.
