Feb 20, 2012 General Meeting

Our next Quarterly General Meeting will be held on Monday, February 20, 2012, from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Ice Breaker Lounge.

Our Quarterly Meetings are open to the public, and we invite you to come learn more about us.  Our first projects for 2012 are our membership drive, our new website, and our Tourism Radio station.

As we launch our membership drive, we invite both large and small businesses to join together to create a successful business community.  We especially welcome small home-based business owners to join us and get online with our new chamber website.  Visitors will find everything they need to know about Fort Simpson on our site, and residents will visit to get the latest community events, and you can be there with free advertising for your business if you are a member.

With our Tourism Radio station, we plan to include music from local musicians, historical information, business ads, and trivia to create a long program of information for visitors.  For Associate Members we can list all your upcoming events on the program.  Join today and become part of the airwaves!

The NWT Chamber of Commerce  priorities are the Mackenzie Valley Highway, the Mackenzie Gas Project, the proposed Mackenzie Valley Fibre-Optic link, devolution and hydro projects.  Chamber President Chuck Parker also introduced the idea of working with the Government, the Chamber of Mines and other interested parties to develop an Economic Strategy to guide future infrastructure and industrial development.
