Memberships and Affiliates
Having been part of the Calgary Business community for over 10 years, we have business-level or individual-level memberships in great organizations.
For more than 120 years, the Calgary Chamber has been the city’s main connector of people, ideas and stories. As a non-partisan organization we’ve facilitated meetings, debates and gatherings with some of the brightest business and political minds in the city, province and country. The goal of which is to solve business problems, and push the social and political agenda in the way necessary to make our city a better place to do business, regardless of political leanings or affiliations.
Throughout the years, we’ve grown and evolved to better serve the city. Our event and programing team has put on learning workshops to help businesses overcome some of their toughest challenges, and they’ve hosted events with politicians and leading CEOs throughout North America to keep Calgarians on top of the latest business and political trends. At the same time, our policy and government affairs team has acted on behalf of the business community in Calgary, advocating all levels of government to implement the policies needed to make sure Calgary remains a great place to do business. Over the years, these advocacy efforts have helped to lower taxes, keep government spending in check and improve economic competitiveness. (source: calgarychamber.com)
