The Whitby Chamber was the first ever Chamber of Commerce to join FanSaves which set in motion our offering and digitalization of Member-to-Member Discounts. Traditionally, Chambers used a card system for their member deals or simply listed them on their website but ever the innovators, the Whitby Chamber wanted more. Our partnership with the Whitby Chamber continues to grow and we are proud to be able to shine the spotlight on them for all they do in their community and beyond. We are huge fans of the Whitby Chamber and we know you will be too.

The Chamber CEO, Natalie Prychitko, bought us all matching fuzzy slippers that we secretly wear under our desks... and then sometimes not so secretly into meetings in the boardroom.
