About Us

SURREY BUSINESS NEWS is the new online blog of the Surrey Board of Trade’s Business in Surrey Newspaper. Starting this blog means we can highlight Surrey business stories and publish time-sensitive information that will be of value to readers. The site will evolve as you let us know what to read.

The Business in Surrey newspaper is published 5 times a year, with the pdf of each issue available here. Stories range from national and international news that impact local business to stories featuring SBOT members, events and informative content. Members have an opportunity to submit small announcements (see pages 21-22 in our latest issue) and opportunities exist for advertising, content marketing, workshop listings and more.

I look forward to working on this site together with our readers to create a quality informative product!

THE SURREY BOARD OF TRADE

For nearly 100 years, the Surrey Board of Trade has supported, promoted and advocated for the commercial and industrial interests of Surrey Businesses. A community is only as strong and as viable as its business community, and with Surrey’s rapidly growing significance in the Lower Mainland, the role of the Surrey Board of Trade has never before been more important to champion a strong, vibrant business community.

With a membership of 2,100 representing 6,000 member contacts and over 60,000 employees, the Surrey Board of Trade is a powerful link between businesses, governments and the community. The membership is a diverse mix of small to large businesses, industries, manufacturers, not-for-profit organizations and individuals who look to the Surrey Board of Trade for information, advocacy, and economic development strategies to ensure a robust business economy that supports a growing, thriving community.

Join the Surrey Board of Trade today. Why? Members can expand their client base through networking opportunities and benefit from the many member to member discounts. Issues and challenges faced by members and the business community are discussed at the advocacy teams’ tables and at leadership dialogues. Government officials regularly meet with members to listen to their concerns. Events are regularly scheduled to highlight and celebrate the many successful businesses and organizations in Surrey. The opportunities to provide input for policy and advocacy statements, resolutions, and campaigns are many.

I am happy to provide yet another opportunity for members and business representatives to learn from each other and advocate through the Surrey Board of Trade for a vibrant, thriving Surrey.
