The High River Chamber is looking forward to continuing to build relationships between groups in the town of High River in the upcoming year.

President Stephen Muth says he is very proud of how the Chamber has worked on rebuilding a lot of relationships between organizations in the town over the last year.

"Everybody was working on an island, pulling in different directions," said Muth. "Unfortunately at times the result of that was not a lot getting done."

He said the board has built a solid foundation over the last year bringing everyone together.

The Chamber is also looking to keep building on their luncheon speaker series.

Muth says they had some strong speakers come out in 2017 including Todd Hirsch from the Alberta Treasury Branch, along with a business coach and a few others.

"We are trying to provide some of that service to our members that they not be able to access elsewhere or access on their own due to cost."

He is hoping to keep building on the series and is looking forward to having the Mayor of High River and the Economic development committee speak in the new year.

"There again most business owners may not have the ability to get that information or the time. So if they can take a one hour lunch and have the ability to ask their questions I feel we are doing our job."
