Blog - Cambridge Chamber of Commerce

The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce has a brand-new online look.

 

The Chamber’s new website offers visitors a fresh and vivid digital experience as they access information on the many learning programs, incentives and events we offer that benefit our local business community.

 

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer a new site that is easy to navigate and still provides our Members with the valuable information they’ve come to expect,” says Chamber President and CEO Greg Durocher.

 

With a click of a button on the home page or from the ‘events’ page, Members will be able to easily access and manage their own accounts using a simple username system. They will not only be able to update their profiles to add or delete employees but will also be able to pay bills online.

 

“This feature will be a huge benefit to our Members and streamline our operation so we can concentrate on what we do best: helping businesses grow and prosper,” says Durocher.

 

The site itself is much brighter and colourful and contains fewer links which in turn will make using it a far more engaging experience for visitors.

 

As well, a new mobile site is included which means much clearer access on all digital devices.

 

“We have no doubt users will find this feature a huge bonus,” says Durocher, noting how much communication is conducted on smartphones.  “It’s important for all businesses to adapt to the latest trends.”

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!!
