Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce

Chief Executive Officer

Canada-Alberta-Red Deer


Company Information

The fundamental purpose of a Chamber of Commerce is to advocate on behalf of the business community to further the interests of business. Regionally, these activities are led by the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce and provincially and nationally with and through the Alberta and Canadian Chambers.


The role of CEO, as the voice of business, is to propose policy directions to government that stimulate the local economy, to lobby for reasonable laws, regulations, and taxation that attract industry and investment to the District; and to inform, research and manage issues/opportunities impacting business growth and success. The CEO represents the Board, and in turn, the membership at each step.

Job Description

Reporting to an elected Board of Directors, the CEO is an ambassador for the business community and forges relationships with stakeholders built on trust, clarity and collaboration.  The CEO and his/her team will continue to build on the 123-year legacy of the founders of the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce by contributing to the completion of a new strategic plan, putting it into action, and keeping it relevant by way of continuous member feedback.

As the CEO of choice, you are most likely either an experienced association executive, or a senior manager from one of the dominant industries in the District (agriculture, construction, oil & gas or manufacturing). Through your work life or volunteer life, you have been exposed to board governance, financial management, strategic planning, policy advocacy, human resources, communication and stakeholder engagement. Above all, you are one whose references speak to your ability to “get stuff done” through, and for others, with a propensity to give, rather than take credit when all is said and done.
