Elected City officials and the Association are both committed to making Red Deer even greater for businesses and individuals. With this alignment in interest, the Association intends to work with our elected officials in a respectful manner. In this regard, from time to time, we will request information from elected officials and communicate the Association’s findings.
Other Community Service Organizations
The Association is a community service organization, similar to many other organizations in the City. The Association will seek, develop and encourage positive relations with those organizations as we work together in our respective areas to make our City even greater for businesses and individuals.
For example, we invite the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce to form a municipal affairs committee, similar to committees formed by Calgary and Edmonton chambers. This would improve the relevance of the Chamber to its members and allow it to better represent the interests and concerns of local businesses.
Our local media plays an important role in disseminating information to improve the public’s awareness, participation, and understanding of City spending and taxation. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with our media in providing this important community service.
