Chamber of Commerce plans general meeting

Chamber directors will offer something different at their Sept. 16 general meeting – scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Community Resource Center

Fall is here and with that comes a time for the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce members to discuss issues that have arisen during the summer.

The Chamber directors are going to offer something a little different at their Sept. 16 general meeting – scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Community Resource Center (located by Raft River School).

The directors have been approached to discuss the following: What is is like to have a business idea and then turn into a plan? What is it like then to work with the community, the government, the rules and regulations towards having this idea become a reality.

To this end the Chamber has approached some local business people to come and share their views. This lineup is sure to be of interest, and the comments and connections with other business people are sure to help future businesses negotiate their way through the processes and procedures of setting up in the valley – from re-zoning to highway access, from issues around moving to a new location to finding the right people to have on your team.

The directors are confirming the lineup of speakers, and may have room for one more, so you can leave a message at 674-3260 (Cheryl Thomas) if you would like to be included on the speakers’ list.


You do not have to be a Chamber member to attend the open general meetings of the Chamber. Everyone is welcome.  There will be time to network after the meeting as well.
