Like the Canadian Chamber of Commerce at the federal level and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce at the provincial level, the FCC places a high priority on monitoring and addressing local and regional issues that may negatively impact the businesses of our members. With a focus on tax fairness and a common sense approach to red tape, the FCC is the credible and effective local ‘Voice of Business.’
The FCC regularly organizes and hosts a number of events where members can network with other business owners.
These events include:
- Chamber ConneX a new business networking Luncheon. Held on the first Wednesday of every month, Chamber ConneX is your chance to meet other Flamborough Chamber Members and connect with your community.
- Business After Five
Annual General Meeting
The FCC is a provincially-incorporated ‘not-for-profit’ organization directed by a volunteer Board of Directors, elected by members at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) where a review of the annual Audited Financial Statements takes place.
Honouring The Very Best
At what has evolved into the ‘social event of the year’ in Flamborough, the FCC honours and celebrates the very best in corporate excellence and community service at the annual Outstanding Business Achievement (OBA) awards gala.
Keeping you Up-To-Date
Whether it’s members in the news, what’s happening at City Hall or our upcoming event, the FCC will keep you informed with news that matters.
The Flamborough Open
Knowing that ‘all work and no play’ makes for very boring people, the FCC organizes and co-hosts (with the Rotary Club of Waterdown) the annual Flamborough Open golf tournament.
Save Money On Gas
Considering the high price, cut your fuel costs considerably (3.5 cents per litre) with the exclusive ESSO discount credit card. And it’s FREE!!
Joining the FCC means automatic membership in the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. While the FCC focuses on local issues, the OCC keeps an eye on provincial issues and the CCC address matters at the federal level.
Your FCC membership fees are 100% tax deductible – reducing the net membership cost to your company considerably.
