Our Mission Statement:

Strengthening Business to Promote a Prosperous Community

The Cortez Area Chamber of Commerce is a business membership organization focused on increasing and sustaining economic vitality in the Cortez Area and Montezuma County. Our mission is to strengthen business to promote a prosperous community.

The Chamber works to accomplish this mission through a combination of Economic Development activities and Membership Services. These include providing: networking opportunities, advertising, education & training, small business resources, and logistical support to area businesses, as well as working with regional partners and governmental entities to develop business-friendly policies and programs to recruit new businesses to our area.


Advocacy for members is key, and with hundreds of local business members, the Chamber is well-positioned to promote our members and advocate for pro-business policies that affect them in legislative discussions as the collective voice of business in the Cortez Area. In addition, the Chamber believes it is important to celebrate our member's achievements which it does throughout the year.
