Earlier this month, a small contingent from the Steinbach Chamber attended the Manitoba Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Elkhorn Resort. I was able to attend the Chamber Executives (CEM) sessions and was joined at the AGM by Chamber President and Vice President, Tim Schmitt and Wayne Patram.
The sessions did not disappoint, and our attendance helped to place our Chamber as an active and involved group within Manitoba’s business community. An excellent opportunity for networking with other Chamber executives and business leaders, here are a few key takeaways from the AGM:
- We received an enhanced awareness of economic development across Manitoba and how Steinbach can be a part of it. Moving forward, we can participate in this discussion.
- We were able to take part in debate and discussion on business advocacy issues in the province so the Manitoba Chamber can better advocate on behalf of our local Chamber.
- We were inspired by building awareness of Steinbach with people from around the province. We have a strong and active Chamber, and that’s worth celebrating!
- We created connections that will help provide the Steinbach Chamber with resources and avenues to enhance effectiveness and functionality.

The Chamber Executive looks forward to opportunities such as these to inspire and create positive change and progress within our local Chamber.
