With the intent to assist and promote businesses large and small and foster a business culture based on ingenuity and collaboration, community members and business owners have established the Telluride Region Chamber of Commerce. This non-profit organization will offer new and existing businesses tiered and individualized benefit plans to meet their needs in today’s evolving economic landscape.
“We want to meet with business owners and together brainstorm ways in which the Chamber can play a vital role in their day-to-day business,” said Chamber Co-founder and CEO Jim Riley. “With that as our starting point, we hope to make a more significant impact within the business community and on the local economy, and create a chamber that is relevant to our members.”
Beginning in May the Chamber will offer membership tiers, ranging from $300 to $5,000 annually, and the opportunity for potential members to schedule a meeting with Chamber staff to discuss their individual business needs.
“Each membership tier was created with the basic notion that business owners don’t necessarily have the time to implement a customized chamber experience, but they still want to receive certain chamber benefits. And those benefits range from advocacy to online promotion to member-to-member discounts,” said Riley.
