Hello Chamber Members,

 

I had the privilege recently of attending the Annual Christmas open house at Pavey, Law and Witteveen. Always a great event and great food but better yet a wonderful opportunity to share some cheer with so many great members of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce

.

Our annual Mayors Breakfast was, as every year a packed house at the Galt Country Club. If you attended you know there was some serious networking going on. Keep your eye out and attend our next breakfast in the new year. Thanks to our breakfast sponsor Graham Mathew and Andrew Johnson from Sunlife without your support this simply wouldn’t be possible.

 

Welcome new member to the Chamber Grand Gifts.

 

Hope to see you sooner than later!!

Hello Chamber Members!!....Although it’s getting cold outside things are still heating up here at the Chamber.  On November 27th we hosted a round table discussion with 24 New Chamber Members sponsored by Cowan Insurance Group.    It was great to hear their individual stories, which they shared amongst each other and it was rewarding for us at the Chamber to see business being done.  “People Do Business with People They Know”.  Our goal is to try and bring people together through networking, providing our members with opportunity to make those connections.

 

We are looking forward to another busy week ahead with my favourite Breakfast of the year, the Annual Mayors Breakfast next Wednesday at the Galt Country Club. Thanks again to our breakfast sponsors Andrew Johnson of Sun Life and Graham Mathew. 

 

Our inaugural year for the Not-for-Profit Series wraps ups with month and we were pleased that all 6 sessions were widely attended by our members in the not-for-profit sector. The new initiative was designed to help local non-profits learn, grow, and connect.   All sessions were made available complimentary to our members, sponsored by Graham Mathew.

 

It’s beginning to feel like Christmas at the Chamber office as we get ready to host the Christmas Business After Hours.  We hope that you will mark December 9th on your calendar and join us!  Zoup and Strodes Meat & Deli will be providing the munchies this year and you will need to join me in the Scotiabank Photo Booth! It is also great opportunity to get reacquainted with the Chamber office.

 

The Business Development department will be soon selling two fantastic publications; The Relocation Guide is a very targeted magazine sent to people who are looking at relocating to our City and a brand new publication that will contain all the Chamber University online courses, which will be sent to 45,000 homes in Cambridge.  If you are

interested in promoting your business in one or both publications, touch base with Brandi or I at 519.622.2221.

 

We welcome the following members that join us in the past couple of weeks:  My Walk In Closet, Kids Alive international, Valet Car Wash, Bloomingdale Auto Sales and Leasing, Canada Heavy Equipment College, Your Advantage Insurance and Fuzion Fitness.   We hope that you will also welcome them.

 

Remember to support Chamber Members First!

 

Hope to see everyone sooner than later!!

The last few weeks have been busy times at the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce ... and we are enjoying it.

 

I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Betroth Wedding Store.  What a great concept all in one wedding store including holding the wedding onsite .Congratulations Ron, we are looking forward to the Business After Hours at your location on January 13, 2014.

A special thank you to all the sponsors that have supported our events and programs during the last couple of weeks; Social Media for Businesses was educational,the Inaugural Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Awards, Gary Goodyear’s European Free Trade Agreement Session was very informative and provided a room full of attendees with great information. Thank you for Knapp Fasteners, The City of Cambridge, Mitographics, Can-Technologies Inc. and Noah Jensen for support this session.

 

If you haven’t considered advertising in our publication Spectrum we are currently working on our Winter Edition that is 80 percent SOLD OUT it will hit our 1900 members in mid-January a great option to assist with that winter sales drive.

 

The three area Chambers were extremely excited with all the positive feedback that was received from exhibitors and attendees. Special thank you to the Catering Sponsors, Media Sponsors, Exhibitors and attendees for making the 2013 Business Expo such a success.  This is one of my favourite events of the year as I get to reconnect with old and new friends.  It is networking at its best!!
