As a member of the business community since 1902, the Fernie Chamber of Commerce is committed to being a leading business organization in Fernie. It works on behalf of its members to advance and strengthen commerce in Fernie. To connect with business members, each month, the Chamber arranges great sessions like Banter, Business, & Beer. Every session is hosted by a different chamber member, Urban Settler hosted November’s Session.
