Education, Awards, and Local Shopping

Fernie, BC. The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce its fall programming for 2016. The fall programming, a combination of speakers, workshops, and networking events is designed with membership in mind. In addition to the programming, the Chamber will continue to work on policy development and advocacy.

“We are excited about the opportunities that members will have this fall to grow their business. It may be through an education session or workshop, or by showcasing their business in events like the Banter, Business, and Beer or the Taste of Fernie” says board president Sheila Byers.

This fall has a mix of new and returning events. The Community and Business Excellence Awards is an annual event that celebrates the best in Fernie. The Chamber is accepting nominations until September 11, 2016. Executive Director Patty Vadnais says “the Awards Gala is a fun evening to celebrate success in our community. And, we are happy to confirm that we will again welcome our MP Mr. Stetski and MLA Honorable Minister Bennet to celebrate with us”.
