As a business owner who has “come from away”, I have found being a member of the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce to be instrumental in integrating into the business community. Through breakfast meetings, awards dinner, and the President’s Dinner and Annual General Meeting, I have been able to network with other business owners and service providers in the area. The Chamber is also an excellent resource when trying to find a local service provider for my clients specific needs. Add in the credibility being a member gives your organization, and the feeling of contributing to community development, and membership becomes a no-brainer for any business that operates in or around the Antigonish area.
