Why Join the Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce?

You may have wondered about it yourself. It is a legitimate question and many people-including those to whom the chamber is very important-have no real concept of exactly what our chamber of commerce is, how it works or what it is for. There are, in fact, a lot of misconceptions about the chamber. For example. there are those who believe the chamber gathers statistics, prints nice brochures, visits new businesses, answers inquiries and advertises what a great place the area is to work, live and enjoy life. They are right! However, the chamber of commerce is also a catalyst- a common vehicle through which business and professional people work together for the common good of the community.

A better community means better business conditions, and we work for a better community for everyone. That's why we do what we do. This brings us back to that original question: What do we do? There is, in the final analysis, one reason for the chamber to exist; to do whatever is necessary to keep the area's economic condition at a level where businesses will risk their resources here in hope of making a profit ...everything else is just frosting on the cake ...a means to and end

In any community, it is from the profitable operations of business that all other benefits are derived. Only by succeeding in this fundamental goal can we provide the jobs and produce the wealth to finance all the governmental, civic, educational, cultural and charitable needs that our community is faced with every day.

This means we must do the job needed. That leaves one final question: Who is this 'we' that does all this? "We" are you. The chamber member and all of your business and professional friends who are also chamber members. You are the chamber of commerce. You provide the ideas, the drive, the goals, the funds and the voluntary services to keep the chamber doing what it does. You are the chamber, and without you, there wouldn't be any chamber, and just who would do all those things if the chamber didn't?

We need the confidence that it can be done in our community, state and nation. We need to be available to do it and if we can, and if we do, we will be accountable to the coming generations who will be the true judges of what we do today. We are redefining the role of the chamber as we grow towards a more active chamber. Please consider the importance each of us plays in this endeavor.
