• Who We Are

  • Mission

    The mission of the Back Mountain Chamber can be simply summed up in three words -- community, culture, and commerce. Our Chamber promotes economic growth by enhancing and promoting business through networking, education and social experiences. We strive to improve our local community, augment our culture, and carefully cultivate a balance of business growth with our relaxed and enjoyable quality of life.
     

    History

    The Back Mountain Chamber was formed in 2012 and has steadily grown in its scope and activities.  The Chamber is governed by a Board of approximately 25 volunteers from area businesses and non-profit community organizations.  While the Chamber was formed primarily to promote and support the businesses of the Back Mountain area, it has expanded its role to one of cooperation with other chambers and businesses throughout our region.  Employment opportunities have been enhanced through the workplace development and educational programs offered by the Chamber.  In 2014 Back Mountain Chamber financial grants were awarded to both Back Mountain school districts through our fundraising events. In 2014, we migrated to a new and improved website with supporting software that will enable our members to better promote their businesses, provide a membership directory, offer a local calendar of events, integrate with our accounting systems, and highlight our many events and accomplishments.  Today, the Back Mountain Chamber has grown to a vibrant and very active organization intent on promoting the businesses and improving the quality of life of our area.
