New West chamber goes provincial
The New Westminster Chamber of Commerce has joined the B.C. Chamber.
At its June meeting, the board of directors decided it was financially able to become part of the provincial body and take advantage of a collective voice of more than 120 chambers throughout British Columbia.
“From an advocacy perspective, our voice will become louder on issues that are affecting our business community from a local, regional, provincial and national perspective,” said New West chamber president Andrew Hopkins. “There will be times when our voice may differ from that of our provincial colleagues as we try to reflect local concerns, but being a part of a louder, more active voice will benefit members in the long run.”
