Welcome to Fundy National Park! We are delighted to have them as a member.

Fundy National Park is the perfect place to experience the world’s highest tides – not to mention pristine forests, deluxe campgrounds and a taste of Atlantic Canada culture.

They have also generously proposed a member-to-member benefit, which we will share once it has been approved by the Board. If you would like to offer a benefit to your fellow members, submit your idea here and it will be reviewed at the next Board meeting.

Each fortnight we shine the spotlight on one of our ACCC members. Remember to send us any business updates or news for additional mentions in our newsletter!

Discover Albert County Campaign

As you may have seen in our announcement email, our new campaign, Discover Albert County is now in action! Based on our enormously successful ‘Tis the Season to Shop Local campaign from 2021, Discover Albert County will help tourists and locals alike see the breadth and experience of our amazing local businesses.

Unlike last year’s campaign, there will be no element of competition, as raising the profile of Albert County benefits us all.

Cyber PR Army Black Friday Preparedness Message

Member Cyber PR Army would like to remind people that Black Friday is only a month away.

If you are looking to upgrade your tech, check out your local computer stores to find out if they will be having a Black Friday sale. You can also check out national tech providers such as Best Buy, Costco, Staples and Walmart (all located in Moncton) for any specials that could benefit your bottom line.


Wix/Squarespace/Weebly – if you are looking for a dedicated platform to manage your website, Black Friday is a great time to lock in a plan with any major platform.

WordPress plugins – if you use WordPress, Black Friday is often the perfect time to buy security plugins, themes, and much more.

If you would like help assessing your tech or graphic design needs ahead of the sales, contact Lynn Colepaugh.
