How Becoming A Member Benefits Your Business

Welcome! We Are So Happy To Have You Here.

Hello, local business owner/entrepreneur/enquiring mind. Thank you for your interest in learning more about what The Bragg Creek & Area Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) can do for YOUR business.

There have been quite a few changes over the last couple of years that have seen our membership offerings grow for our new and existing members alike. Please read on to learn how the BCCC can benefit and support your business, for whatever stage you are at.

Specialized Directory Listings

The BCCC invested in a website overhaul to consolidate the BCCC and Visit Bragg Creek sites to live solely under Visit Bragg Creek. Why? To ensure that traffic to the two sites was no longer split and to maximize exposure for your business listing within our directory. Our newly expanded directory allows you to include a full business write-up, prominently display your logo, PDF embeds to showcase menus/classes/etc., embedded video options, specialized call-to-action buttons, and more! We also offer one-on-one support on the design and set-up of your customized business listing with our in-house marketing specialist. To view our directory take a look here.

Community Job Page

As local business owners, we understand the challenges that come with recruiting and retaining staff in a small town. One of the biggest challenges is knowing where to look for both postings and where to apply for local jobs. The BCCC in partnership with Rocky View County has created a community job board for you to get those positions listed and filled! Take a look here to see how it all works. 

Community Calendar

Another exciting value-add that was recently launched is our Community Events Calendar. Want to know what is going on at the local pubs this weekend? Wondering when the next Chamber meeting or interactive workshop is happening? Check it out to plan your weekly activities and submit your own events. The creation of a community-wide FREE-to-use calendar creates more traffic to our site which means an opportunity for more exposure for your business listing! Check out the calendar here to start submitting events.

Chamber Benefits Plan

Affordable health benefits for you and your employees are important and often hard to come by as a small business owner. An excellent reason to join the BCCC is access to the benefits Plan through the Alberta Chamber of Commerce. Canada’s #1 benefits Plan for small firms can provide your business with comprehensive and competitive health, dental, and disability program customized to meet the needs of your employees.

Advertising and Marketing Support

We know it is hard to get started with digital and social advertising as a small business and we are here to help! Our in-house marketing specialist is available for a one-on-one session with all members annually to help with anything you need. Help with social strategy, Google Ads, digital campaigns, email marketing, content writing, and more are available when you sign-up to become a Chamber member.

Chamber Social Channel Support

Have an event or promotion you want to showcase on our social channels @visit_bragg_creek on Instagram and @visitbraggcreek on Facebook? We can help with that when you become a member. Our social accounts have been steadily growing and will continue to gain exposure with our targeted marketing campaigns throughout the year.

Business Showcasing and Mix’n’Mingles

Networking and getting your business offerings out to the local business community is extremely important in a small town. The BCCC offers the opportunity to do both at our monthly member meetings/workshops/mix’n’mingles throughout the year. Come and showcase your business and get to know your neighbours a little better.

Free Registration for BCCC-Sponsored Events

We know that every dollar matters as a small business owner. That is why we are proud to support our members with FREE registration for all BCCC-sponsored events. BCCC events are a great way to increase your customer base and gain business exposure through our targeted marketing campaigns and promotions.
