The BC Chamber strongly urges member Chambers and Boards of Trade to identify the issues of importance to your members, your community and the province as a whole and begin to develop policies for our 2017 policy process. These proposed policies need to be submitted by mid-March, 2017, in preparation for policy votes at our 2017 AGM & Conference.
To assist you in building policy, we have created the following resources for Chambers and Boards as they develop policy resolutions:
- The BC Chamber Policy Development Guide (PDF)
- Five Steps to Policy Development (PDF)
- Resolution Template (Word)
- Resolution Checklist (PDF)
- Late Resolution Process (PDF)
The purpose of this material is to provide members with an overview of the procedures governing the BC Chamber policy process. We have also addressed key areas of concern and confusion often experienced by members.
For members who would like further assistance, please contact Dan Baxter, BCCC Director of Policy Development, Government & Stakeholder Relations.
