About the Chamber

The Ingersoll District Chamber of Commerce (IDCC) acts as a unified voice for all sizes of businesses in Ingersoll and advocates on their behalf to all levels of government. Active in the Business community since 1960, the IDCC was formed from the original Board of Trade, established and registered in 1934. We do not receive any public funding, so we are independent and accountable only to our membership.

The IDCC’s well-developed committee structure consists of 18 volunteers that make up the Board of Directors. These Board of Directors, along with the Chamber Staff, operate and follow the directives of the Chamber membership. Each Director bring forth suggestions and ideas from fellow Chamber members to monthly board meetings. Each Board member volunteers their expertise and enthusiasm to the Chamber, which in turn uses that talent to develop social, political and economic policies that affect the quality of life in Ingersoll.

Nominations for Board of Directors are accepted mid December for the upcoming year. At that time, nominations are brought forth to the Nomination Committee who make the final decision. The announcement is made at the Annual General Meeting held in March. If nominated and approved, each director’s term is two years, to a maximum of four terms (eight years).
