Message from the Executive Director

Our Annual General Meeting was held on September 18th and hosted by Union Gas, at their new head office building at 918 South Service Road. The event was attended by over 60 members who enjoyed an evening of networking and an informative tour of their modern facilities.

As we move into October our Chamber will be hosting a number of events in celebration of Small Business Week. This includes a  joint presentation hosted by the Hamilton Small Business Centre and the Stoney SCreek Chamber of Commerce. Another joint event will be an interactive panel discussion hosted by the Grimsby, Hamilton Flamborough and Stoney Creek Chambers on October 22nd, followed by our Annual Open House networking event on October 23rd.  Watch your email and frequent the Chamber site for details.

It's not too early to note in your schedule of upcoming events our Annual Holiday Gathering to be held on December 4th at the Express restaurant. This is one of our most popular events and is always well attended. It's a great night for good food and networking.

Don’t forget that hosting an ‘After 5’ is a great way to showcase your business.  Contact the Chamber office for details and remaining available dates.

Finally, I urge all our members to get out to vote on October 27th. There are a number of hot button issues such as transit, taxes, job creation  and infrastructure renewal. There are a number of local councellor races that are being hotly contested  with a large number of candidates seeking election.
