Chamber creates positive image
The Carson City Chamber of Commerce has served the business community since 1945 and continually strives to build a healthy economy and high quality of life in Carson City and the surrounding area.
To accomplish this goal, the Chamber staff and its board continually strive to institute programs to increase the visibility of its membership to the community.
As with any non-profit membership-based organization, membership has its privileges and the Chamber’s privileges are many. Here are a few highlight:
Our website: More and more consumers and businesses have turned to websites to gain information on areas and local businesses. The Chamber maintains a state-of-the-art site providing members with free listings.
Our networking opportunities: In small communities such as ours, personal contact remains the key. We still enjoy meeting with fellow business owners in relaxed settings. The Chamber provides a minimum of two networking opportunities monthly. Other opportunities such as ribbon cuttings, grand openings and social events further provide opportunities to which members are invited.
Our social functions allow new members to be introduced.

Our educational programs: As we find the need for businesses to update their practices, we conduct timely educational programs. Our premium annual education program is Leadership Carson City where we create the leaders of tomorrow.
Our advocacy: While we believe it is important to work hand-in-hand with our state and local government, we need to continue to advocate on behalf of business when it appears government has forgotten the importance of the business community. We maintain cordial relations with all forms of government.

Our commitment to the young entrepreneurs: Those still climbing the ladder of success have a home at the Chamber. We formed a Young Business Professionals group to address the need of the business community of tomorrow. Member employees between the ages of 21-40 are welcome to join the group at no additional expense.
The young professional is our future.
Our communications: We live in the communications age where the written world still rules. The Chamber publishes two magazines annually incorporating a full membership directory. In Focus reaches consumers and businesses throughout the city and is strategically placed in our local hotels, in public brochure racks and used in relocation packets. In addition, we write monthly columns in the business section of the Nevada Appeal updating our community on what is happening with our members and within the business community.
Our community involvement: When there is a need in our community, we are there! We gather our business member volunteers and clean up our parks and streets, revamp areas that need some TLC, provide support to our sheriff and district attorney in their efforts to fight crime and serve on many local committees that need assistance from the business community. Anyone can call us and when we can, we respond!

Our travel club: If you love to travel, travel with those who reside in northern Nevada. We love to plan trips where at the end of the trip, everyone is a friend and we get to see the world together, although we learn to appreciate our little corner of the world so much more.
