Purpose

There are three primary functions performed by the chamber:

  1. Promote business: The chamber serves as the primary destination marketing organization and promotes the tourism industry out-of-market. The chamber also provides numerous opportunities for local businesses to promote themselves to visitors, residents and other businesses.
  1. Protect business: The chamber seeks to influence legislation and regulation by local, state and federal governments in a proactive manner, supporting legislation that benefits businesses and the communities they reside in and, where necessary, opposing legislation that unnecessarily inhibits businesses.
  1. Improve business: The chamber offers a multitude of programs and services that assist businesses and/or individuals.
