Chamber of Community

An associate of mine came into the shop today. We we’re discussing the state of the volunteer community in Fernie. She said ” it seems like 10% of the people accomplish 90% of the work.” I figured this could be adapted into a fairly accurate tag line for volunteer run organizations. Her latest experience trying to ‘make change’ happened to be directed at the Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is excellent at collaborating and communicating amongst it’s members, but somewhere along the way, I think, the community aspect has been lost. So I said “We need a Chamber of Community!” After much excitement at “my idea” and more brainstormnig I realized…this “idea” has been realized. Advocates for Local Living. You can check out their ideas at
