A federation of 124 Chambers of Commerce, which in turn represent over 22,000 businesses, the Alberta Chambers of Commerce ensures its members' business interests are improved through the development and advocacy of policy to the provincial and federal governments. To assist members in expanding their business potential, the Alberta Chambers coordinates its efforts with its local Chambers of Commerce to achieve the lowest possible tax and regulatory environment.
Here are just some of the ways the Alberta Chambers of Commerce serves its members:
* Reviews and assesses new legislation or amendments to existing acts and regulations and apprises its members of potential concerns;
* Coordinates its advocacy efforts through 124 member Chambers of Commerce; and,
* Obtains answers for members who are having difficulties with the government and who may not be familiar with the way the bureaucracy operates.
