November 2016 - 11/26/16 DVCC Members Meeting

Members meetings will always be on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
Executive meetings are usually one week before that (2nd Wednesday of the month).

May 2017 - Chamber Meeting

This is a friendly reminder of our Diamond Valley Chamber of Commerce members meeting next Wednesday, May 10 at 8:30.  The meeting will be at the Black Diamond Town Office - 301 Centre Ave W.

A few extra things:

1. Parade Day

The executive have decided that well join the parade this year!  The goal is to spread awareness of our business and inspire the community to shop locally.  Well keep it fairly simple and have members walk with our flags, a SHOP LOCAL banner and balloons, well hand out rolled up member applications and candy.     

Well be meeting at _8am before the next members meeting to make the shop local banner and roll up the applications forms.  Were looking for volunteers to help us out, everyone is welcome to join us at 8am at the Black Diamond Town Office.  It would be a great opportunity to network and meet some of the other business owners in town.

Were also looking for volunteers to walk/bike in the parade for the Chamber.  If your interested email me and I will add your name to the list.  There will also be a sign up sheet at the next meeting.  

We need your help to make a presence in the town so that people will be proud to shop local and to motivate other business owners to join the chamber so we can do more things to help our businesses grow.    

2. Business Card Exchange

Reminder to bring your business cards if youd like to exchange with others to create a display of cards in your business.  A great way to spread awareness of the amazing businesses in town!

3. Lemonade Day

Let us know if youd be interested in hosting a Lemonade Stand at your business this year.  This is a wonderful opportunity to allow our young budding entrepreneurs in the community to experience running a business.

4. Chamber Brochure

Well be bringing some chamber brochures to the next meeting and would love if youd take at least 2 to give to a business in the Diamond Valley area that isnt a chamber member yet.  

Start thinking of who youd like to be a part to the chamber and bring the brochure too.  Sometimes all it takes is just to ask.  

5. SNAPS Business Survey

Recruiting & Employing Persons with Disabilities

Hiring people with disabilities makes excellent business sense. Please take this 6min survey and make a difference in the Foothills business community. Your opinion counts! Please complete by _May 15th.

Turner Valley:

We would really appreciate if you would share this survey by email or on social media.  Just copy and paste the links.

Thank-you from Foothills SNAPS!

6. Petition for Protecting our Forest

Its been brought to our attention that there are plans to clear cut the trees West of Longview.  This would be a tragedy as many people love coming out here for the beautiful scenery.  We believe if this happens it will lower the amount of tourists that come through our towns and may effect our business.  

We need to have our voice heard and join together to prevent this from happening.  Well have a petition for protecting our forests at the next meeting for you to sign.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope to see you at the meeting next week!
