WE’RE INDEPENDENT – Because we do not receive monies from any local or other governmental body, the Bend Chamber can be entirely objective on issues, without outside influence of any kind. All our programs, events and publications are funded solely by our membership and strategic partnerships.
WE’RE PROACTIVE – We proactively advocate for pro-business public policy through regular 1:1
engagement with local and state leaders and legislators, ensuring your voice is heard, and the power of
a united business voice is felt. Our efforts to gather comprehensive, reliable, balanced information, to
equip and mobilize our members, nurtures civic engagement and drives a prosperous economy.
WE’RE RESPONSIVE – We support economic development, talent attraction, business retention and
expansion through strategic partnerships with COIC, EDCO, DBBA, Opportunity Knocks, COVA, Visit
Bend and a wealth of business community networks. As our community grows, and business needs and
concerns expand, we respond with the help of our mutually-beneficial partnerships.
WE’RE DYNAMIC – We offer more than 50 scheduled Chamber events per year, designed to serve the
needs and interests of our diverse membership, and are constantly developing new opportunities to
improve your visibility and build your network. Our interactive community forums such as “What’s
Brewing” spotlights trending issues, and enables differing opinions and thought-leaders to be heard.
WE’RE VISIONARY – We believe in the future of our city and business community. We provide
educational opportunities and leadership training for the next generation of entrepreneurs through
Leadership Bend and our Young Professionals Network “Pints with Pillars” programming. We honor
Bend’s most successful and inspiring businesswomen through our “Women of the Year” Awards.
WE’RE COMMUNITY-FOCUSED – Our Chamber For Good program allows us to serve as a resource
broker for local non-profits to make our business community aware of specific needs NOW so they can
mobilize and respond to the organization of their choice.
Now could be the perfect time for YOU to join the Bend Chamber!
