In a changing world where most people are getting their information through social media, the Crossfield Chamber of Commerce is offering opportunities for local business owners to connect and share ideas on how to adapt and continue business growth.
According to Nicole Vandenberghe, the chamber’s executive director, business owners should review their business plans annually. Maybe you aren’t social media savvy or maybe you aren’t necessarily looking to grow your business but have concerns with how municipal rules are affecting your storefront. These are some of the reasons why business owners should stay connected with their local Chamber of Commerce.
The Crossfield Chamber of Commerce has been working hard to line up a schedule of events for 2018, which includes a series of short discussion luncheons called Lunch N Learns and other connection events, as well as the Annual Charity Golf Tournament. The second annual Rural Women in Business Conference will take place in May, which is aimed at motivating entrepreneurs and businesswomen by providing them with the tools they need to grow their business.
If you are a local business owner, attending one or more of these events and looking into what the chamber has to offer might be a good idea, or maybe you have something to offer the chamber.
