Eugene Chamber of Commerce
About the Chamber of Commerce
"What makes a great community?
- Is it a clean environment?
- Friendly people?
- Good schools?
- A variety of cultural and recreational opportunities?
"Clearly all of those elements are fundamental to our community's quality of life. But every bit as important is a healthy local economy. Business success means jobs for local residents, taxes to support key government services, contributions to support worthwhile community organizations and a commitment to the community that means Eugene will continue to be one of the country's premier small cities.
"For over 100 years the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce has dedicated itself to creating an environment that allows business to succeed.
"A solid business environment means having easy access to customers and suppliers. That's why businesses were delighted when Delta Airlines initiated new non-stop jet service into Salt Lake City. The service resulted from continued aggressive efforts by the Chamber and the Eugene Airport that have become a national model for airline recruitment.
"For over 100 years the Chamber has been facing the changes, challenges, and opportunities of the community. We will continue to work with our partners in business, government and education to improve the quality of life for local residents.
"To promote a healthy local economy by influencing
- Business success
- Public policy
- Community development"
