The Clovis Chamber of Commerce was started in 1910 and incorporated in 1930. Since then, the Chamber has been a major force in the economy of the valley.
Over the years, it has created committees and councils that provide the organizational structure to accomplish the Chamber’s goals and mission – to advocate and support a healthy business environment that improves the quality of life in Clovis. Networking and marketing events provide opportunities for members to expand and increase their business. A healthy business environment creates a strong community.
Ambassadors are the official goodwill representatives for the Chamber. Their primary mission is to promote and recruit membership through ribbon cuttings, personal contacts and networking events.
Advocating for local businesses is one of the primary responsibilities of the Chamber. The Advocacy Task Force analyzes and acts on legislation that impacts the business community. Recognized statewide for its advocacy, the committee encourages members to interact with elected officials to impact legislative decisions.
ClovisPAC is the political action committee of the Chamber of Commerce and exists as an independent entity that studies legislative issues and can support, endorse or oppose city, county, state and national issues or candidates. ClovisPAC is also recognized as an effective influence on the local and statewide political scene.
Chamber Gives Back
The Chamber Gives Back committee is focused on giving back to the community. Our “Hooked-on-Books” program with a goal of putting a book in the hands of every school child in Clovis, is in full swing. Distributions have been completed at five area schools, with more planned next year. The Chamber is also encouraging donations for the Marjaree Mason Center, a shelter for women.
Wednesday Line Up
Each month, a Chamber member hosts a coffee connect, monthly mixer and lunch connect for fellow members. New relationships and leads are established that help to improve and increase business.
The Ribbon cutting team celebrates new businesses, expansions, remodels and new ownership by cutting the ribbon with the famous big Chamber scissors – another great way to network and market your business.
