The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization. This does not mean that we spend without regard for revenues or profits. As a business association, the Chamber board mandates that we follow financially sustainable business practices. We do not spend more than we have. Further, our spending is focused on our mission. Our offered programming and education courses are the results of a thoughtful process on what our members need.
