Who are directors?
Directors are people like yourself, who have taken a keen interest in creating a welcoming business climate in Fernie. They believe that the business community has a responsibility to the community as a whole, and that as individuals, working through the Fernie Chamber of Commerce, they can make a difference. Directors are leaders with a sense of direction and a strong desire to be part of a team that works in their community.
What do directors do?
Directors participate in the governance of the Chamber of Commerce, determining the focus and direction of the organization each year. Directors actively participate as representatives of the business community at various events, and meetings with all levels of government. Directors participate in committees that suit their skills and interests.
Where do directors do their work?
Directors meet at business functions and events, however, they also offer their services from their place of business as time allows.
In short – they’re at work in the community.
When do directors meet?
Directors meet in the Chamber of Commerce Board Room on the second Thursday of each month.
The Chamber hopes to hear from you!
