Chamber of Commerce on the MOVE!
More activities, more projects, more members and more business translates to the need for more space. The Cortez Area Chamber of Commerce is moving to 31 W. Main Street in downtown Cortez, right next to Citizens State Bank, in order to expand and enhance our services.
The primary mission of the Chamber of Commerce fosters business prosperity for community success. It is a vital organization that builds relationships with members and groups through cooperation, education, networking and resources. The Chamber of Commerce is not a department of the city, county or state governments and receives no tax or lodging money. The Cortez Area Chamber of Commerce is completely membership supported. All businesses, organizations and individuals with or without a business affiliation are welcome to join the Chamber to be part of a prestigious, non-partisan institution. The Chamber is a team of residents who value progressive programs and services and work together towards a vigorous community.
The new, larger location is a place where business owners, community leaders and the public can come and gain a sense of belonging and mutual gain. We really care about people's businesses, and are serious about our role to promote community success and for 75 years we have been gathering strong people together to create opportunities. By being more centralized in the heart of the business district, we'll be more accessible and better able to interact with our members and the community and now have the opportunity to host meetings and gatherings downtown. We look forward to creating new memories and most importantly, growing our services for our members and community partners.
