I’m excited and honored to be the new board chairman of the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce. With the staff and board’s help, we hope this will be a positive and productive year for our community. The Chamber will continue to advocate for businesses in our area through our legislative council and activities. We will also continue to work hard to create a positive business climate for our businesses.
We want to make positive changes to the Chamber and the community as we move forward. Some of our new efforts will include:
* Establishment of a tourism committee. The committee will be working on helping bring tournaments, events, and related economic boosters to the community. Bringing people to our community to eat, shop, and stay in hotels is positive for everyone.
* Our “one ask” effort. We started this last year, and the staff is busy making improvements on it this year. The purpose of this effort is to visit with each business one time each year, ask them for the appropriate support and sponsorships, and let them analyze and make their decision to support the Chamber for the entire year. Our hope is that it is much more efficient for the business and allows them to budget accordingly.
* Focused reviews to make sure our events are meaningful to the Chamber and community, and are efficient in their purpose.
The VALUE from the Chamber truly comes from your involvement and commitment. If you are interested in joining the Chamber or becoming active on one of our committees, please call the Chamber office at 233-1525 for more information.
