BLACKFOOT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

About Us

Greater Blackfoot Area Chamber of Commerce

Organized in 1952, the Greater Blackfoot Area Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization whose mission is to add value, create a positive business climate, and enhance the quality of life for the people of the Blackfoot area. We promote general business prosperity and support life excellence through economic, civic, agricultural, cultural, industrial, educational, and recreational interests.

To fulfill our mission, we host a variety of business networking and community events. These foster goodwill, celebrate our heritage, and build & strengthen relationships among the residents of the area. Our quarterly community events include The Easter Egg Hunt, Celebrate Blackfoot, the Annual Chamber Golf Tournament, and the President’s dinner. 

We provide our chamber members with indispensable networking opportunities at our monthly luncheons; this event has attracted a surge of growth. New members from nearby cities, including Idaho Falls and Pocatello, esteem the work we do and are eager to be involved.

The Chamber champions members in their new-business Ribbon Cutting ceremonies, Business After Hours events, and provides low-cost advertising via three, strategically placed marquees. 

The Chamber is maintained by a 17-member volunteer board and three ex-officio members, as well as a director who manages the daily functions of the office.
