The Klamath County Chamber of Commerce is the largest business representative organization in Klamath County and works for close to 500 businesses and organizations in the community.
Chamber members make up a cross section of every business category in the county and region. It is a hard working, dedicated group that stays focused on building a better community and economy. Through the Chamber, members support a variety of programs, projects and events ranging from the 4th of July Parade and celebration in downtown Klamath Falls to business education programs.
The Chamber is a hub of networking and marketing activities, on a weekly basis, the staff handles hundreds of telephone calls, e-mails and visitors looking for information about Klamath County and doing business here. KLAMATH.ORG receives hundreds of hits daily and is fast becoming the "go to" site for information about events, relocation and business education.
The Chamber manages a variety of programs that help member businesses adopt "best practices" in management, create community leaders for tomorrow, advocate strongly for business and community friendly legislation and provide leadership in economic and commercial development.
Klamath County is lucky to have a vibrant downtown in Klamath Falls, picturesque attractions like Crater Lake, a thriving arts scene and friendly small towns. Our membership is represented in all these areas and many more. Members support many local causes and non profit organizations directly and in partnership with Chamber activities, knowing it is an important part of building a livable community and ensuring an ever improving quality of life.
As the business world changes the Chamber Board of Directors and staff will strive to meet the changing needs of the membership and community by engaging in strong advocacy, taking advantage of creative marketing opportunities and continuing to build partnerships that improve economic vitality in Klamath County.
It is a joy to work for an organization that is so well supported and takes a leadership role in the community.
