"Assistance to businesses, no matter what industry you are in, can help you achieve your company goals. There are many resources out there – but a valuable resource can be found at the community level. The Leduc, Nisku & Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce is an excellent local resource. The Chamber of Commerce is involved in many activities from education to lobbying various levels of government. Where I have found they have had a direct impact to Wetaskiwin Co-op and all our divisions, is with their free marketing of our career opportunities with their Online Job Postings, a valuable tool in this competitive job marketplace. I have found the Chamber of Commerce has become one of our valuable business partners. And I recommend to any business owner to fully embrace them as a resource for their company."
