OAKVILLE, ON - The Oakville Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce it has achieved a milestone of 1,200 members, representing more than 40,000 employees. Among the top five Chambers of Commerce or Boards of Trade in Ontario, the Oakville Chamber is one of the largest associations in Oakville.
“We are delighted to reach this milestone of 1,200 members. It shows the value the Oakville Chamber brings to the business community. We look forward to continuing to represent the growing voice of Oakville’s business community” stated Caroline Hughes, Chair of the Board, Oakville Chamber of Commerce.
In 1949, the Oakville Chamber of Commerce was incorporated under the federal Boards of Trade Act with 30 members. Since those early days, the Oakville Chamber of Commerce has grown and evolved to become the voice of the Oakville business community. Through advocacy, corporate benefits, networking opportunities, events, business development and educational forums, the Oakville Chamber works to foster a healthy, engaged, and sustainable business environment and economy in Oakville.
To celebrate their diverse membership, this summer the Oakville Chamber of Commerce launched the I’m A Member Because campaign. The campaign was created by members, with members, for members. The campaign features two videos and a series of photos of Oakville Chamber members holding a chalkboard stating the reason why they’re a Chamber member.
A special thank you to Media Rez Studios for producing the video, and Fotografia Boutique for photographing the members. You can view the videos before every movie this summer at Film.Ca Cinemas and on Intrigue Media screens throughout Oakville. You can also follow the campaign on the Oakville Chamber’s social media channels. Oakville Chamber members can join the campaign by sharing why they’re an Oakville Chamber member @oakvillechamber using #ImAMemberBecause.
