FAQ

A Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit action organization designed to meet community or area needs. It is a voluntary organization of progressive individuals and businesses that work together to advance the commercial, financial, industrial, and civic interests of a community. The Chamber spearheads local community events with the goal of business advocacy and professional networking.

The Ponoka & District Chamber of Commerce is funded by the membership along with the assistance of fundraising activities.

A Board of Directors, elected by the Chamber of Commerce’s members, runs the organization.  The Board, serving as volunteers, sets the policies and goals of the organization.  It is the responsibility of the President to ensure these policies and goals are met.

The notable benefit of membership is advocacy, exposure, and access to resources.  Chambers of Commerce also provide their members with value-added programs available only to members (i.e., merchant rates; comprehensive group insurance; courier and natural gas discounts, to name a few).  The savings from these programs often offset the cost of membership.

Strong membership involvement will increase the impact and effectiveness of the organization.  Chamber of Commerce membership is an investment in the present and future of the individual’s and the community’s welfare.

The Ponoka & District Chamber of Commerce has always stood for promoting business; monitoring municipal, provincial and federal governments; and championing managed growth in the local economy. By investing in your local Chamber of Commerce, you invest in your own prosperity–both as a businessperson and as a member of the community.
