With a new year of challenges ahead, it’s important to share your perspective with all levels of government and policy makers. Why not attend one of these webinars
with provincial ministers, transportation leaders, business innovators and more! Our sister organization, the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce, has announced that members will have exclusive access to prominent decision-makers this spring while a series of webinars will keep them informed and engaged.
The webinar has become a hugely successful means of networking, and Chamber members like you have jumped on this most important bandwagon, thanks to the
opportunities provided by the EDCC in 2020. Although we are not in a position to provide further webinars, we encourage all local businesspeople to visit our Chamber partners
and participate in this ongoing, online, dynamic dialogue with leaders of the business world.
Virtual town halls will kick off Feb. 19 with representatives of the B.C. government followed by the federal Conservative caucus March 3 and Kelowna International Airport March 31.
“We are extremely excited to provide our members with an opportunity to hear directly from those who influence policies regarding Covid, our community and economy. There will also be a chance for our members to ask questions and raise issues relevant to them,” said Dan Proulx, Greater Vernon Chamber general manager.
Feb. 19 – Ravi Kahlon, B.C. Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation; Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture; and Harwinder Sandhu, Vernon-Monashee MLA
March 3 – Mel Arnold, North Okanagan-Shuswap MP; and Pat Kelly, Conservative Shadow Cabinet Minister for Small Business and Western Economic Diversification
March 31 – Sam Samaddar, airport director, Kelowna International Airport
Beyond the town halls, the Chamber is hosting a series of webinars on topics relevant to businesses and non-profit organizations.
Feb. 17 – Get Clear On the Role Of Your Non-Profit Board with Deb McClelland of OnBoard Training
March 10 – Selling Your Business with business broker Rob Raybould
March 17 – Community Gaming Grant Process with the Community Gaming Grants Branch
