This year’s conference is being held in Richmond, May 22 – 24. The three submissions are a Temporary Foreign Workers Resolution, a Driver Training Resolution and a Physician Compensation Resolution.
Chamber delegates from across B.C. will vote on these resolutions, which must receive two-thirds of votes to pass. If successful, these resolutions will become official B.C. Chamber policy and the chamber will “advocate it to appropriate tiers of government.”
“The Fort St. John & District Chamber of Commerce is proud to take these resolutions forward to our peers from across the province,” President of the Fort St. John & District Chamber of Commerce, Russ Beerling said. “Our chamber is committed to creating a more business-friendly Fort St. john & District and more business-friendly B.C.”
“We think these resolutions will help achieve that and we hope it will get the needed votes from our peer chambers,” Beering added.
Each year, member chambers of the BC Chamber develop and submit policies for the consideration of their peers. This year, 45 policies are put forward and will be voted on at the AGM policy session.
