Tuesday we heard a message from Janet Riopel, (pictured) CEO of the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce (ECC). She spoke of how we live in changing times, where many of the details are unknown, and how this makes for a very challenging environment for businesses of all kinds.
Changes in the economy, provincial government and even the governments of other countries have resulted in wholesale changes being proposed to many different parts of our economy and the economies of our trading partners. The effects of changes to minimum wages, electricity prices and municipal property taxes to international pipeline approvals and trading agreements are all uncertain at present. All of these changes will directly or indirectly affect many local businesses.
The ECC acts as a spokesperson for their 2300 local business members, to present a collective voice and help to cut through the haze that surrounds us. They do this through researching specific issues and championing policies to decision making groups that will promote the welfare of local businesses. They do this by trying to expand business and investor confidence, expand trade and market opportunities and also by expanding partnership opportunities for local businesses. Some issues that they encourage are innovation, diversification, infrastructure investment, better transportation corridors, and access to other markets, both regional and abroad.
Many companies have chosen Edmonton as their home base. The tenacity and drive of local businesses has allowed them to lead, grow and prosper. When businesses come together, as they do in the ECC, we can help to create the best possible environment for business in Edmonton.
On behalf of the Superstition Rotary Club you are invited to participate in the Annual Rotary Can-Am Golf Tournament. This is a fun tournament on one of Arizona's premier golf courses at the Gold Canyon Golf Resort.
While this is a Ryder Cup Format, it is also a Canadian - American Golf Challenge!! I'm campaigning for as many Canadian golfers as possible to play and 'take the cup'! The registration fee is $125 per person or $250 a twosome.
The Challenge is scheduled for January 14, 2017 at Gold Canyon Golf Resort's fantastic Dinosaur Mountain course, 6100 S. Kings Ranch Rd., in Gold Canyon. We look forward to your participation! Attached for your information are complete details regarding the event and registration. For additional information, please feel free to contact the following individuals: Len LaFlesch (firstname.lastname@example.org) 650-400-7700 or Ryan Duff (email@example.com) 480-671-5566.
Open the ATTACHMENT WITH INFORMATION.
This, the largest fundraiser of the Superstition Mountain Rotary Club, is quickly approaching. Get your registration(s) in. Feel free to pass this information on to others who may want to participate or contribute.

Annual Christmas meal for St. Teresa of Calcutta School.
This event is now fully booked. Thank you to all the volunteers.
The annual Christmas meal is prepared by an area Junior High School for the students and families of St. Teresa. This is one of the rare opportunities they have to get all families in the (economically challenged) area involved and build community around the school.
They’re looking for up to 10 members of the Edmonton Strathcona Rotary Club to come out and help to prepare and serve the food on site at the school, as well as to do some light set-up if needed (the Grade 6 classes will mostly take care of this part).- See more at: http://portal.clubrunner.ca/399/Event/annual-christmas-at-st-teresa-of-calcutta-school#sthash.Nkez1A8c.dpuf

(1) Media Helper
(1) Photographer Helper
(1) Stage Manager Assistant
(2) Set Up

>>> PLEASE LOOK AT THIS ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY <<<
With the number of members in this club either owning or operating a business, we are getting a very poor interest in this nice little generator of funds for the club.
Are the rates too steep? I don't think so, but if you do, please let us know.
If you have any bright ideas on how to promote this little initiative, please speak up.
