Chamber of Commerce
The Claresholm Chamber of Commerce was re-established in 1994 and has maintained a continuous membership in the community since that time. The organization is comprised of volunteers representing a cross-section of the many types of businesses in Claresholm and the surrounding area. These volunteers direct and implement the services, events, and operations that make up the Chamber’s annual mandate.
Since the most recent inception, the Chamber of Commerce has evolved to a vibrant organization that is responsive to the needs and desires of its membership. It is a home for business community members who wish to affect their surroundings in strong and positive ways. The Claresholm & District Chamber of Commerce is eager to meet the future of business in Claresholm.
