Welcome to our newest members:  Academy of Learning College, Chief Will Yum Gas Bar and Store, and WLCTV.ca.

We invite members and guests to attend our general meeting luncheon Thursday, Sept. 24, at 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Signal Point Restaurant.

Chamber meetings offer businesses the opportunity to meet other businesses.   Members are encouraged to enter one of our draws and your business could be profiled compliments of the Williams Lake Tribune/Weekend Advisor and Cariboo Country and the Goat as well and other prizes.

Our speakers for September are Terry Shannon, environmental compliance manager, Western Operations for Atlantic Power Corp. who will be speaking on the renewal project.

Brian Battison, VP Corporate Affairs will provide our members with an update on Taseko and its project activities in the region.

We offer many benefits to our members, when is the last time you checked them out?

For example, Purolator is one of those benefits.

Every day the Purolator network successfully delivers more promises to more points across Canada than any other parcel and freight solutions provider. As a member of the Williams Lake and District Chamber, you are entitled to even greater value when you choose the Purolator network; with volume discounts on Purolator Express and Purolator Ground services.

We are always looking for more opportunities to offer benefits. Contact us if you have an idea.

Our fall newsletter will be distributed soon and we thank those who have utilized this great tool to promote their business and events.
