At the 2011 AGM, a working group was formed to revise the by-laws of the Annapolis
Board of Trade. The group has completed its work, and the proposed new by-laws are
based on the sample by-laws published by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, which
can be seen at:
A motion to adopt these proposed by-laws will be put forward at the quarterly general
meeting on Thursday, 14 June.
As a preliminary, an informal meeting with the working group will be held upstairs at Ye
Olde Towne Pub at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, 7 June, to review, discuss, and if necessary
amend, the proposal. All members of the Board in good standing are invited to attend.
Any-one who is interested in attending this preliminary meeting is asked to phone me at
532-0353 or to e-mail me at:
so that I can send them the background material. This includes the text of the proposed
by-laws with a commentary on their ramifications, cross-references to the Boards of
Trade Act, and a comparison with the old by-laws.
Welcome to the Annapolis District Area
The Annapolis Board of Trade is the membership organization of business owners in the Town of Annapolis Royal and 90 square miles of the surrounding Annapolis County area.
The terms "Board of Trade" and "Chamber of Commerce" are synonymous and interchangeable; we have been using the more traditional title since our incorporation in 1946. Our purpose is to support, encourage and develop business within the Annapolis district area.
Our primary objectives involve the fostering of trade and industry, the stimulation of civic development and the general promotion of the welfare of our community. We are constantly looking for new projects to support these objectives. We maintain ongoing communication with the Town of Annapolis Royal as well as the Municipality of the County of Annapolis. We support a local youth initiative in creating a skate board park, Junior Achievement Stay in School Program in the local high school, manage operations at a local Visitor Information Center, develop and manage the bi-weekly Annapolis Retailer for advertising opportunities, have fun at the annual Golf Tournament and enjoy social networking occasions several times a year.
It is our hope that you will consider joining our organization and become an active member of our community. For more information please visit this website, contact any of our board
