I have been a member of Salt Spring Island Chamber for many years now, and found it to be a great resource for my business. There are many fantastic networking opportunities available, as well as keeping me in touch with the concerns, ideas and solutions in our local business community. I am so happy to be a Chamber member.
We are happy to sign our business up for a membership to the Chamber. Inclusion in the Welcome Bag Program will be a great way of gaining exposure for our business among the newly arrived to Salt Spring Island.
