about-advocacy

We are an advocacy agency first.

Without our membership program, there would be no advocacy work. Without advocacy, there would be no championing of issues affecting Lakeland businesses.

By offering our membership program and events, we can carry out advocacy work and better serve our members.

The Cold Lake Chamber works to grow strong relationships with all levels of government to strengthen the voice of local business owners.
