QCI Chamber plans to join Rupert’s

  • Jun. 9, 2008 8:00 a.m.

The Queen Charlotte Islands Chamber of Commerce is likely to join forces with the chamber in Rupert, after a meeting Sunday evening in Port Clements. Chamber members voted to investigate joining the Rupert chamber, and will form a transition committee to look into how to proceed. The move comes after almost two years of inactivity on the chamber’s part. Despite having a solid membership base of well over 60 businesses, the chamber has struggled for years with low attendance at meetings. “I think it is pretty sad, three to four business people showing up to a meeting, that is sad,” said Cacilia Honisch at the meeting Sunday. The chamber may pay the first year’s membership fees for island members in the Rupert chamber. Joining forces with Prince Rupert may not be the perfect solution, but it would be a lot better than the nothing the chamber here is doing now, those attending the meeting heard.Anyone interested in the plan can get in touch with the following;Urs Thomas, Port, 557-4325 info@goldenspruce.caDutes Dutheil, Tlell, 557 9324. ddutheil@qcislands.netWinston Shave, WC, 559-8481, wgs@qcislands.net Those attending also discussed the possibility of the Sandspit chamber joining Rupert as well, since it apparently is suffering similar problems.
