“Most members of the Chamber will see their dues increase fifteen dollars per year, not a significant financial impage to the businesses but unfortunately an increase just the same.”

Muth says it’s a minor increase and adds it’s the first the chamber has had in several years.

He says dues may be on the increase but so is membership which climbed from 165 in 2015 to 190 in 2016.

He says in the last three years he’s seen positive changes between the chamber and town council.

“There’s been a huge improvement in the working relationship and the communication between the chamber of commerce, town council and town administration. The future is pretty bright when you get everybody pulling in the same direction.”

He says among his plans for the new year he wants to share best practices with the Okotoks Chamber of Commerce.

“For 2017 we’re going to try and put on some joint educational presentations that some of our members have been asking for in relation to employment standards, staffing and marketing.”

 

High River Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lynette McCracken was honoured for her years of service.
