The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce was three for three.

All three policy resolutions the chamber presented at the B.C. Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting received support from delegates.

“We are pleased that all three of our policies were endorsed and will now become part of the provincial advocacy agenda for the B.C. chamber,” said Dauna Kennedy, GVCC president.

The local chamber received endorsement for its policy which calls on the province to increase its investment in the public arts and culture sector. The chamber also received support for its policy that seeks to level the playing field for private liquor outlets that wish to distribute liquor on a wholesale basis and deal directly with liquor producers.

The third policy resolution that was passed seeks to bring the province, local governments and the development sector together to explore ways to optimize the timing for payment of development cost charges.
