ABOUT THE CHAMBER
The Canton-Galva Chamber of Commerce was initiated by three members of Canton-Galva Future Business Leaders of America. For a competitive event, the Partnership with Business Project team, Kaylee Littrell, Lane Wiens, and Autumn Colgin, decided to try to reactivate the Canton Chamber of Commerce and expand it to include the businesses in Galva.
FBLA members obtained the addresses of all the business in the Canton and Galva communities. Then they sent out letters to all these businesses inviting them to the first ever Canton-Galva Chamber of Commerce meeting on October 21st, 2015. There were approximately 16 businesses represented at this meeting and the Canton-Galva Chamber of Commerce had officially been activated.
The Canton-Galva Chamber of Commerce meets at 12:00pm on the third Wednesday of every month, alternating the location between the Canton Community Building and the Galva Community Building. FBLA members usually provide a lunch for the Chamber and then the Chamber begins discussing whatever is necessary for that month. As a Chamber we have revised and rewritten the old Canton Chamber Bylaws to create the Canton-Galva Chamber of Commerce Bylaws. And we have discussed many other things that we would like to implement in the businesses in the Canton and Galva communities.
