‘New’ Members Choose Your Dues Level with Tiered Chamber Membership

At the 2014 Chamber AGM, Campbell River Chamber Members voted in favor of adopting a tiered dues membership structure to replace and eliminate the ‘inequality’ of the previous structure that was based on number of employees.

In consultation with our members on why they wanted and supported this change it was based on the following:
  • Members want to choose the benefits and services they need and be able to clearly see what those options are
  • Member needs evolve as they move through their business cycle and they want to renew their membership annually based on what their business needs are at that time
  • Members want to get benefits without having to show up
  • Members want bottom-line benefits with a return on investment
  • Members want to know their contribution and business is appreciated at any level
  • Members want to show their support for the impact and role of the Campbell River Chamber  and reflect that in their choice of tier
We have responded to our member’s by providing a new tiered dues structure with three options.  Starting in January 2015, members will be able to ‘choose’ their membership renewal based on the tier with the services and benefits that best meet their needs.

We look forward to meeting with our members and businesses in the community to support them in deciding which tier will best suit their needs and will bring them closer to accomplishing their goals for 2015.

Are You Registered to Compete for Contracts Associated with the John Hart and North Island Hospital Projects?

The 
Major Projects Portal is a strategically developed site, targeted at major project bid proponents, and is a one-stop, local supplier and community resource centre. The site will maximize the economic opportunities flowing from major construction projects in the area. Recently the portal launched an accommodation section of the website for suppliers for local accommodation.

Why should you should register as a supplier? Prime contractors are able to browse the profiles of registered suppliers, to gauge what trades, resources and materials are available locally. Registering on the site allows local suppliers to create a tailored profile for a major project’s prime contractor to browse. This is an opportunity for you and your business to be seen, contacted and engaged by major project decision makers.
