They have well over 200 members, an increase over last year, but the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce is looking for some leadership.
 
Three of the 13 member Chamber Board of Directors have resigned in recent weeks. ATCO Electric's Sylvia Adams and Adrian Hartman of ATB Drumheller trasferred out of town, while Brooke Christianson cited too many other commitments.
 
Brock Harrington chairs the board as Chamber of Commerce President.
 
"They attend monthly meetings. It's a policy board," he explained. "There's other committees they can be active on like advocacy and the operations of the (World's Largest) Dinosaur. Other than that, it's not a big commitment."
 
Chamber membership has been growing steadily over the last number of years and Harrington thinks it's a good time to be a director.
 
"(We're) probably financially one of the strongest (chambers) in the whole country," he noted. "We have staff upwards of 50 when you calculate in the Visitor Information Centre and all the people who work at the (Tyrrell) museum under our umbrella. It's certainly a growing entity."
 
While the three board vacancies popped up almost all at once, Harrington isn't concerned about filling them.
 
"It's a good way to network and know what's going on in town and to have a voice and all that stuff," he outlined. "They just need to contact the (Chamber) office: If anybody has any questions they can give me a call (403-823-7703). It's just once a month meetings at 7:00 a.m. It can be as much or as little as people want, really, it's up to them."
