Welcome to our newest members: Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin, Interior Properties Real Estate, and Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett.

Your commitment and investment to the Chamber is appreciated, thank you.
Excitement is mounting for everyone as the Business Excellence nominees have been notified as announced in the media.
Who will be the recipients for this year?
Congratulations to all the nominees for the 20th Annual Business Excellence Awards. We are delighted to see the quality of nominations this year, and it was interesting how many people went online to nominate.
The awards are ready and will be engraved for the big evening.
Tickets are selling quickly, and everything is coming along well.
This is another celebration for success in Williams Lake and the area so come out and enjoy the “Licence To Thrill” and celebrate with everyone. Call the Chamber office and reserve your tickets for this one of a kind gala event.
In other news, the member to member program is continuing in 2015.
We ask that you all use your cards at participating members and provide cards to your employees; it is another perk for everyone.
If you don’t use your card at other members why would others take advantage of your discounts. That’s how it works.
For more info or to sign up (at no cost) contact the Chamber office at 250-392-5025. The next Cariboo Memorial Complex Fitness passes will be from April to June and deadline to register is March 20.
We just hosted our monthly General Meeting luncheon Thursday, Feb. 26, at Signal Point Restaurant.
Our guest speakers this month were: Lloyd McTaggart of CSM with World Class Solutions for Independent Business. Lloyd owns and operates Common Sense Marketing and has partnered with the Chamber to offer a professional sales skills workshop.
His presentation was on sales; how to make them and much more.
We also had two other presenters; Brianna van de Wijngaard (Puddle Produce Urban Farms) and Terri Smith (Road’s End Farm Vegetable Company) who discussed gardening and how it can be supported and encouraged in the community.
All these speakers should provide common sense and exciting new ideas for our community.
During luncheons, members can enter the Chamber Chatter draw sponsored by the Williams Lake Tribune and Cariboo Country and the Goat to win a business profiles for the next Chamber Chatter.
