Your Peterborough Chamber of Commerce was awarded the 2017 Excellence in Advocacy Award at the 105th Ontario Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting in Sarnia this past weekend. The award is given to a chamber or board of trade that has demonstrated forward-thinking policies around advocacy and is considered the
go-to source for advocacy within their community.
“Advocacy on behalf of our members is the core work of the Peterborough Chamber,” says Jim Hill, Chair of the Board of Directors. “To be recognized as a leader among Ontario Chambers speaks to how the Chamber is ensuring Peterborough businesses have opportunities to remain competitive.”
"The Excellence in Advocacy Award from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce is recognition that we are among the best at the core work of the Chamber – the business of lobbying Government," says Stuart Harrison, President & CEO, Peterborough Chamber of Commerce. "The award recognizes the work of the Policy Committee, the uniqueness of the Power Hour, the solid content of the Leaders Lunches, and our skill at communicating all of it, thus it is an award for all of us, staff, volunteers and Chamber members. Now we know how it feels to win an Excellence Award!"
