Tanya Hanson-Rocca (October 2022)

Hello Chamber Members

As the voice of business in the Oromocto area, we are here to serve your business needs and to help you prosper. The OACC is built on a culture that our members are our customers, and everything we do is focused on delivering value for our membership.

Our Mission is based on three pillars:

ADVOCATE - We are actively advocating on behalf of business by listening to their concerns and challenges and working with all levels of government to ensure they are aware and responding to obstacles they are facing.

BENEFITS - We have a variety of benefits for our members such as group insurance, opportunities to promote your business, and education on a range of business and leadership topics.

CONNECT - We host stimulating events with expert speakers and community leaders, Business After Hours, Breakfast events, and socials. Our goal is to create a fun and engaging experience where you can interact with other businesses and learn from each other, while developing new relationships to expand your network.

We would be honoured to connect with you to better understand your unique business needs and introduce you into our thriving business network.

Thank you very much,

Tanya Hanson Rocca

The Oromocto & Area Chamber of Commerce (OACC) is an organization of local businesses managed by an elected volunteer Board of Directors who represent the local business community. The Chamber Board meets monthly to discuss ways in which to meet and improve the needs of the membership. Each year we strive to offer benefits designed to assist you in your business, and to save you both time and money. As the membership continues to grow, we continually look for new and innovative ways in which to be of value to members.

For your general information, the Board of Directors meets every second Wednesday of the month. Any member may contact us to have an item placed on the agenda. All issues are important if they affect our business community. We will be proactive as we continue to go into the future.

Several times during the year, the Oromocto & Area Chamber of Commerce hosts a Lunch & Learn – a networking event that is geared towards helping the small business owner. Experts from different industries deliver a short presentation over the lunch hour. These interesting and educational working lunches are a great way to network and learn at the same time. The Lunch & Learns take place the third Wednesday of the month and the cost and speaker will be listed on our facebook page. You will also receive an invite through email. Come and learn something new and meet and network with other Chamber members. The Lunch & Learns are open to the public so if you want to bring a friend, feel free. If you would like to make a presentation at one of our monthly Lunch & Learn sessions or if you have any suggestions for topics or questions regarding the event, please email the Chamber at oromoctochamber@nb.aibn.com.

The Chamber also holds an annual Business Awards Dinner where we honor a local business and a member of our community for their valuable contributions. These dinners are a highlight of the year and a wonderful chance to get out and enjoy a first class dinner, network with your peers, find out what the Chamber has been up to the past year, and help honour our local heroes.

We also like to support our students as much as possible. We award a $1000 scholarship to one Oromocto High School student and also hold an annual Student Pitch Contest where entrepreneurial students can win prizes and receive mentoring from local experienced judges. This has proven to be a wonderful experience and a lot of fun to watch.

Information to Businesses


What Are O’Dollars?

O’Dollars are universal “gift certificates” that can be used just like cash at participating OACC member businesses.  O’Dollars are a way in which communities can support local businesses and the Oromocto community.  ODOLLARS DO NOT EXPIRE!

What do O’Dollars look like?

O’Dollars look like actual dollars and will have an OACC Seal affixed to each dollar.  O’Dollars come in denominations of $5, $10, $20, and $50.   (See image above.)
It is important that all staff who handle purchases be aware of your individual process for accepting O’Dollars to avoid confusion when customers present O’Dollars as cash for their purchases.

How and when will my business be reimbursed for O’Dollars that have been used at my establishment?
Participating merchants will be reimbursed at face value for the O’Dollars they have on hand.  At the end of every month, businesses will complete the O’Dollars Reimbursement Form.  The form is to be emailed to the attention of Debbie Percival at oromoctochamber@nb.aibn.com.  The OACC will then arrange for a Chamber representative to collect the O’Dollars on hand and provide reimbursement via e-transfer or cheque.

What if my small business needs to be reimbursed prior to the end of the month?
If your business needs to be reimbursed prior to month end, please email Debbie Percival at oromoctochamber@nb.aibn.com.

Who can participate in this program?
Businesses that elect to participate in the O’Dollars program must be members of the Oromocto & Area Chamber of Commerce.

How will customers know that my business accepts O’Dollars?
Each participating business will be provided with door decals and information cards that they can place at or near the cash.  Participating businesses will be listed on the OACC website, Facebook page, and newsletter.  Businesses will also be highlighted during the O’Dollars launch.  Participating businesses are asked to pick up their information cards and door decals at The Oromocto Galleria at 291 Restigouche Road, Oromocto.  Galleria hours are Tuesday to Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
