While the Coboconk, Norland & Area Chamber of Commerce is still relatively new to the area, the organization comprised of 12 Board of Directors (who are volunteers!) and 1 part-time staff person have worked hard to encourage economic growth, boost job creation, and benefit our communities with various projects, events, and beautification efforts throughout all four seasons.
Some examples of projects undertaken by the Chamber are: the new public docks, accessibility ramp, and boat ramp in Coboconk and Norland; delivery of educational workshops for small businesses; presenting the annual Canada’s Fresh Water Summit Festival and the annual Santa Claus Parade; and advocating for more resources for our communities. Since it was established in 2014, the CNACC has leveraged more than $425,000 in funding for community improvements in Coboconk, Norland & Rosedale. It is the goal of the CNACC to help local businesses and communities prosper.
“Our Chamber is a little bit unique in its focus”, says CNACC General Manager Jennifer Wilson. “We serve our local businesses and advocate with the City on local issues like all Chambers do, but we also spend a lot of time raising funds for beautification projects and to build local infrastructure, and hosting events to draw the community together”.
Much of the success of the events, projects, and initiatives are due to the generous volunteers and community groups who have worked closely with the CNACC and have dedicated their time and resources to the development of their communities.
“If there was only one thing we would like for you to know, it’s that we are here to work together with you - our members, other local community groups, and residents - to help make our communities better. None of us can do it alone – we need to pull together in a focused effort to make a real and long-term difference in our communities. We are reaching out to you – if you have a project or idea that will positively impact our communities, let’s talk about it and see if we can partner together to make it happen”.
