Membership

The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce is a member-driven, volunteer led organization and it is through our members’ investment in us that we are committed to fulfilling our vision of being the most unified, valued and influential business network. Our principles of being member driven, open minded, proactive, results oriented, collaborative, impartial, ethical and respectful guide our organization. Our dedication to our mission: Connect, Support and Influence means that our focus is always squarely on how we can create the best possible environment for our members to grow and succeed.

In keeping with our principles, vision and mission, we have structured our membership in a way that allows members to choose how they connect by offering a variety of investments that support their individual goals.  We recognize that as a business grows, its needs evolve, and we want to ensure that our membership reflects that change. Our membership opportunities allow members to get the best possible value for their investment.
