It was a big year for business in Prince George.

The city’s Chamber of Commerce hosted 36 networking, marketing and educational events throughout the year, as well as organizing the Canucks Townhall Breakfast in September.

“By the end of 2015, we will have had four Cash Mobs” said Chamber CEO Christie Ray. “A very successful initiative, something we’re very proud of encouraging residents to shop local.”

Prince George also welcomed other chambers from around the province for the 2015 Annual General Meeting.

The chamber will be hosting a business development forum for smaller companies in early January, the day before Prince George holds the BC Natural Resources Forum at the Civic Centre.

“This year we’re working with the BC Chamber of Commerce to do more of a small business side of things the day before the Natural Resources Forum kicks off” said Ray.

She says she’s looking forward to seeing more local businesses become carbon neutral through the Chambers Carbon Footprint Reduction Project.
