New Chamber Chapters to Serve Businesses in Summit County Real Estate

Plans are moving forward to create five new chapters of the Chamber of Commerce to each serve the distinct communities of Summit County Colorado real estate: Frisco, Breckenridge, Silverthorne, Copper Mountain, and Dillon/Keystone. Summit Chamber of Commerce will serve as an umbrella organization, assisting with funding and set up.

Business owners and entrepreneurs relocating to Breckenridge homes and opening businesses or telecommuting from Summit County will soon discover business assistance tailored to the specific needs for Breckenridge real estate, and likewise in the other mountain towns and markets.

Almost two years ago, the Summit Chamber of Commerce determined that the individual communities within Summit County real estate are each unique. The organization determined to provide these local communities with more individualized support. As a result, the individual Chamber of Commerce chapters will grow. There will be more active members because members will find a greater level of service. Consequently, the Summit Chamber of Commerce will more aptly knit together the larger community.

The decentralization will improve cooperation and communication between the businesses who serve together in a specific town. Each town receive information specific to its own market and be better able to communicate needs. Marketing initiatives may become more specific.

The initiative is very purposeful. According to comments by Mark Nunn published November 28, 2012 in a Summit Daily News, the reorganization “has the most potential for growing the County, for helping the current businesses, for bringing people into visit and trying to make sure Summit County is going to continue to grow and succeed.” Nunn is the chairman of the board of the Summit Chapter.

So the strategy is twofold, to support the individual differences within the five communities and to put forth initiatives at the entire county will support. Each of the local chapters will be represented by two members in the Summit Chamber Board of Directors. The new structure encourages better coordination and will assist with strategic planning in Summit County.

Local business organizations assisted Summit Chamber of Commerce. Local business leaders and organizations such as the Frisco Chamber, the Copper Resort Chamber, the Dillon Business Association, and Silverthorne EDAC were acknowledged in the article by Jessica Smith in the Summit Daily. Over time, the new chapters will also provide a more functional dialogue with local government agencies.
