2015 IS THE CHAMBER CENTENNIAL!

The Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce is celebrating one hundred years of Connecting Business and Creating Opportunity in 2015!

We actually launched our year-long festivities at our 2014 Annual General Meeting in December and continued the party with our Chamber Centennial Member Celebration on February 7th. Our next featured event is our Chamber Centennial Business Showcase on April 30th (location TBA soon!). Members will be able to rent booth space to display their information and products to hundreds of attendees. In keeping with our theme, we will be launching our Chamber Centennial Booklet highlighting some of the events that have shaped the business community in Grande Prairie & District.

June 18th is our Chamber Centennial Golf Classic at the Dunes Golf & Winter Club! This year, we hope at least some of our golfers take a step back in time and bring back clothing and equipment from past eras (plus fours, Gatsby caps, mashies and niblicks, etc.).

August 27th is our Chamber Centennial Barbecue at Centre 2000! The highlight promises to be our Recognize a Trailblazer Program. The Chamber Trailblazer recognizes local individuals* from the past 100 years who have made an important or unique contribution(s) to community in the Grande Prairie Area, and to the residents and businesses that reside here. They may have shown outstanding leadership, accomplished something very interesting, noteworthy or unique – maybe even a bit quirky. Perhaps they have been the brainchild behind an invention, event or initiative that has made an impact locally or well beyond our borders . . . the sky’s the limit!
We want to hear about the people over the past century that you know of (and maybe we haven’t heard of) whose actions have helped grow the heart and foundation our community.

Nominees do not need to be Chamber members. Their contributions, however, will have helped drive our Chamber mission to improve our economy and our quality of life. Up to 10 individuals from the past century will be honoured. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
