Local. Provincial. National. The Chamber network is the most powerful voice for getting your message out, and creating change.
In 2014, the Business Advocacy Committee was established to play an advocacy role on behalf of business members in the community, and to work with business and government to develop and implement policies designed to ensure Drumheller and district provides an atmosphere that is conducive to business and sustainable community growth. The Committee meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 12:00 pm. Meetings are currently held virtually; email our Executive Director Heather Bitz if you are not already on the committee and wish to receive the meeting package. All Chamber members are welcome.

The Drumheller DinoArts Association is a nonprofit group that promotes, repairs, and expands the collection of more than 30 dinosaur statues displayed outdoors throughout the Drumheller Valley.

If you are interested in becoming involved with or donating to the DinoArts Association, we would love to hear from you!
