The Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce is an active advocate for business. Letters related to policy positions will be posted on our advocacy page.

TCCC Policy Positions

Any policy adopted by the Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce at each year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) is adopted for two years unless otherwise specified or reconsidered at a subsequent meeting. At the end of the Annual General Meeting, two years after a policy is adopted, it expires unless it is renewed for an additional two years, or such other time as passed by motion at an AGM. Should circumstances require changes to a piece of policy before an AGM, it will be at the discretion of the Board of Directors, in conjunction with the policy committee. Those changes will then be voted on at the next AGM.
