The Florenceville-Bristol & District Chamber of Commerce is a member-based organization that represents, promotes, and improves trade and commerce, and the economic, civic, and social interests of the district.
Welcome to our new Website for the Florenceville-Bristol and District Chamber of Commerce! We’ve started with some basics and we expect that as our membership grows, this website will adapt to everyone’s needs.
In building this website, we discovered that this site is ready to travel! No matter what device is your favourite technical preference, you will have the full site at your fingertips, from the calendar to your members’ benefits! You can even join while you and your business are on the go!
“Buying Local” isn’t just about economics. It’s about people. By putting bread (or in our case, potatoes) on your table, you are including your local grocers, your local growers, and your family and neighbours who work with them. You are a part of the “bigger picture” whether you are in business for yourself or providing a service to someone else’s business.
I’ve been my own boss since 2005 and I’ve been serving on the Chamber Board of Directors for a little over 5 years. My motive at the time was to let local businesses know who I was and what I could do for them. Little by little, my motives changed to what we can accomplish together with our Town Hall. It doesn’t only apply to our community, but throughout the Saint John River Valley. With that common goal, you will find events and links on our website that are shared with our town and many local organizations.
So, explore our new website and stay in touch. And be sure to tell us “Hi” when you walk in our doors!
