President's Message

What is a Chamber of Commerce?

 It is my distinct pleasure to have been elected to the position of President of the Sussex and District Chamber of Commerce (SDCC), an organization which has a solid tradition of serving and being the voice of local businesses and communities. The SDCC continues to play an important role in our wide reaching community and assists local business development in ensuring that our communities continue to thrive and grow. Our Chamber has a fresh new look and vision moving forward through 2014-2017 and through a diligent and dedicated  Board of Directors will strive to communicate your business concerns to our local and Provincial government officials through clear and open dialogue. 

We believe that Sussex and area businesses will see membership in our Chamber as more than taking advantage of our exclusive member benefits which include networking,   support opportunities, education, monthly meetings, a Group Insurance Plan, reduced Merchant Credit Card rates, business discount rates and more. Our website will provide you the information to move forward to becoming a member and getting involved in the community at large. 

For those who have already seen the value in maintaining their membership over the years, they realize the strength that we have as an organization, as with any successful organization, is dependent upon the level of member dedication in keeping our vision alive and forward thinking.

To our Committees we applaud your valuable input and fine work and we encourage all current members and prospective members to continue to be actively engaged in Chamber business. Chamber members support one another by using the services that other members provide via the motto of “Buy Local”! We will continue to recommend other Chamber members to our clients and friends wherever and as often as possible. 

Remember: "Benefits of membership far outweigh any cost!" 

For a Membership Application and further information, please feel free to contact our office at 506-433-1845 or  It will be one of the best business investments you have made! 

Ivan Graham - President
