Almonte Old Town Hall – Multipurpose Room 

On Thursday, November 10th the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce is holding a Special General Meeting to determine the future of the Chamber.  In order to carry on, the Chamber needs to recruit a number of energetic and dedicated volunteers to serve on the Board of Directors.  The positions to be filled include the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer as well as a number of directors at-large.  In addition to regular Board meetings, there are a number of “working” roles that need to be filled such as communications, membership, and event management.

If you are interested in serving in any of these roles, please send an email to with subject heading “Volunteer” indicating your interest, background and contact info. 

In the event, that there is not a sufficient number of volunteers to carry on the work of the Chamber, there will be one or more alternative motions to consider for putting the Chamber into dormancy or dissolving it altogether.

The meeting will also be open to motions from the floor although it would be preferable if a copy in writing were submitted prior to the meeting to ensure clarity.  To ensure inclusion in the agenda, please send no later than 6 p.m. Sunday 6 November.

The full agenda for the meeting including financial statements and draft motions will be sent out no later than 6 p.m. Tuesday 8 November.

To attend the meeting and contribute to the discussion, please register with the link below.  The meeting and discussion are open to all members of the Chamber past, present (and future?).  Voting on specific motions will be confined to one vote per current membership.  Voting cards will be issued to a representative of each membership at the door.
