But there’s so much more. Since 1904, your Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce has been working as the voice for business in our community and surrounding areas. That means we represent business in city and local government, as well as facilitate collaboration among community partners to address issues affecting business. Recently, you might have heard that the Missoula Chamber’s Workforce Development, Education and Recruitment Committee is addressing the need for quality, affordable childcare in our area (click here to read article from the Missoula Current). When key players come together with a focused mission, the community benefits.

Becoming a member of the Chamber is a valuable partnership investment in your business’ success. According to a 2012 study commissioned by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), when consumers know that a small business is a member of the local Chamber of Commerce, they are 49% more likely to think favorably of it and 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. Wow – talk about credibility!

Our Chamber Education Series and Leadership Missoula programs are another great reason to join. They offer quality, affordable continuing education and programming to support your growth and that of your employees.

Collaboration and connection. That’s what we do, and we do it for you. So the next time you wonder if joining the Chamber is right for you, maybe the better question is, “Do you want to be represented, respected, and growing within the community and beyond?” If the answer is yes, then we have a membership level for you.

But don’t take our word for it. According to a recent review on our Facebook page, “The Missoula Chamber is invaluable, a real asset to our community. Enough said.”

And yes, we still have great networking opportunities and a really big pair of scissors too.
