Benefits of being a Chamber Member

Being a member of the Drumheller Chamber allows you to be actively involved in the Drumheller business community.  Your local Chamber provides advocacy on behalf of its members, as well as important networking events that allow you to get out in the community, introduce your business, and get noticed.  The value of this is immeasurable.

Business Advocacy

Local. Provincial. National. The Chamber network is the most powerful voice for getting your message out, and creating change.

As the Chamber of Commerce, one key role we play is to advocate on behalf of business members in our community. The Chamber of Commerce works with business and government to develop and implement policies to provide a business environment that is conducive to business and sustainable community growth.

Advocacy Goals and Objectives:
- Work with and on behalf of our members to identify issues or barriers to growth
- Develop strategies through which to address and resolve the identified issues or barriers
- Work with provincial and national Chambers of Commerce, on behalf of our membership, to provide input and direction on policies which will positively impact our members and the business community.

Our Chamber is also a member of the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

Value Added Programs

Chamber members have access to a variety of exclusive benefit programs, including discounts on merchant services, shipping, fuel, marketing, access to the Chambers Group Insurance Plan, and more!

Find out more on what is available for your business, and start saving money for your business.  In MANY cases, your savings from using these programs will more than cover the cost of your Chamber of Commerce membership!

Members can also post Member-2-Member offers on their directory listing and have them promoted in the Chamber newsletter.

Self-Promotion and Communication

As a member of the Chamber of Commerce you will receive our e-newsletter and can also receive event invitations and other timely business-related news and updates to your inbox if you choose.

New members can be highlighted with 'Welcome New Member' posts in our newsletter and on our social media feeds.

All DDCC members can be listed for free on our Membership Directory with relevant contact information and a link to your company’s website and any social media pages. The Chamber can also provide social media promotion—the Chamber retweets, shares and likes member’s social media content to expand their reach. Members also have the potential to benefit from business referrals, as our staff frequently receive inquiries about businesses and services in our community.
