Submit an Event

Members can create their own event and add it to the Calendar of Events for members and the public to access.

Business Directory

Your business is listed on the website’s business directory. The directory acts as a one-stop shop for locals seeking info on local business. If you are a current member and you haven’t already – please add your business to our directory. (include logo, website address, pictures and all your social media links.)

Go to our website and select MEMBER LOGIN on the top right corner and enter your e-mail address and request a password.

Member News

Member News (Press releases) is a great place to update other members on what is happening in your business such as training completed by you or an employee, awards received, merchandise added to your line, new services you are offering, etc. Free with membership, simply e-mail to Heather Holmes at info@gwboardoftrade.com

Member Deals

The program provides value to members by:

  • Offering a point of sale bonus or discount to members making purchases at participating businesses.
  • Building consumer loyalty.
  • Fostering connections between members sharing business with each other.
Business After Hours

The Business After Hours is a monthly networking event (usually second Thursday) hosted by a member to showcase their business. Every month members get the opportunity to visit different member businesses and network while enjoying local wines and delectable appetizers also supplied by members. Attend these events to network with other local business professionals in a casual, social and inexpensive way!

Referrals

The Chamber only refers Chamber members. Our business is to refer your business and to connect you to your next customer or business partner.

Business Before Hours

The Business Before Hours is a monthly networking event (usually the last Tuesday) held at the Greater Westside Board of Trade at 7:30 – 9:00am. Come and join us and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee. This is an excellent opportunity to visit different member businesses and network.

Special Events

Keep up to date with the latest events through the Facebook page and website. We are often looking for speakers, sponsors, hosts & more!

E-Blasts

Every member is entitled to one complimentary e-blast per year (must be in ‘jpg’ format). Any further e-blasts will be $75.

Sponsorship

There are a number of sponsorship opportunities available. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities for events (e.g. Business After Hours) please contact the office.

Lunch & Learn
