Policy & Advocacy

Policy Committees

Chamber policy and advocacy activities are guided by business leaders and grassroot members that assists us in identifying important issues and challenges we need to address with policy makers.

We will be announcing new policy development opportunities for members to engage in with us in fall of 2022, stay tuned!

 

Policy

The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce advocates on behalf of our members to positively influence decisions made at all levels of government.

Advocacy begins with our members through face to face communication, surveys, and other policy engagement opportunities. We identify the issues that restrain business growth and work to create solutions to bring forward to government. We also work to bring awareness to issues facing the local business community.

We work closely with our partners at the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to advocate on issues provincial or national in scope.

We will be communicating new member engagement opportunities in fall of 2022.
