Calling all Delta Chamber members – We want to hear from you!

The Delta Chamber of Commerce is reaching out to all members in an effort to gather real-time data on the level of confidence local businesses have in regard to the current and future state of B.C.’s economy.

As part of a continued commitment to data-driven decision making, the chamber is encouraging members to participate in a province-wide collective perspective survey put together by the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. The results of this survey will provide crucial information that will help guide the development of programs and initiatives to better serve members’ needs.

“We are uniting with chambers from across the province in the effort to better understand our local businesses, as well as get a snapshot of the greater business community in B.C.,” said Tom Awrey, executive director of the Delta Chamber of Commerce. “We hope that our members will find value in giving us their perspective on the challenges and opportunities they foresee over the next five years.”

The short 10-minute survey is being conducted by Abacus Data for the B.C. Chamber of Commerce and can be accessed by visiting fluidsurveys.com/surveys/abacus/bc-chamber-of-commerce. The survey closes on Nov. 4.

For more information on the survey, please contact bccc@bcchamber.org.
