Whitefish Chamber of Commerce
The Whitefish Chamber of Commerce is an independent, not-for-profit business organization that is dedicated to enhancing the economic vitality of our area, while also protecting the unsurpassed quality of life that we all enjoy.
First established in the early 1900s, the Chamber, with more than 500 active members, is one of the leading advocates for business in northwestern Montana. Our members are involved, committed partners who join the Chamber for a variety of reasons, from 1-on-1 networking and corporate exposure to civic leadership and community service. The Chamber has a full-time, professional staff that focuses its efforts on improving the Whitefish business environment. We do this by actively promoting tourism; by identifying and addressing challenges faced by the local business community; by providing our members with innovative opportunities to market their products and services; and by representing the interests of business at all levels of government. Recognizing that tourism is the lifeblood of our economy, the Chamber works overtime to bring visitors to Whitefish, and to guarantee that their vacation is as enjoyable as possible. The Chamber operates the city's official Visitor Center, helping to keep our visitors informed and busy once they get here. Areas of Specialty The Chamber is dedicated to providing all our members with the tools and resources they need to survive and thrive in an increasingly competitive business environment.
