The toughest part about being President of the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber is deciding which program or activity is my favorite. Whether you are a business, a resident or a visitor, our Chamber has something to offer you.
As a member of this great community -- you can bring your children and family members downtown to the Bear Paw Festival and watch the Grand Parade, Slippery Salmon Olympics, or wander through the Classic Car Show and Motorcycle show in July; or, bundle up and head for the business district to visit with Santa and his real reindeer during the Winter Wonderland and Merry Merchant Munch in December -- you've got opportunities!
Our Chamber brings you interesting speakers of the day to keep abreast of the local, state and national issues at the regularly scheduled forums. Additionally, small business workshops are offered during winter months (not during fishing season) to keep us on top of current trends and best practices thereby meeting the challenges of a competitive marketplace. These are open to anyone interested with very nominal fees and are scheduled at convenient times.
Alaska's rugged beauty surrounds us in abundance. Our Chamber has built on this beauty through the creation of a vibrant business environment through projects that enhance the look and feel of the local shopping experience. These include annual beautification projects such as Chief Alex Park at our south entrance and downtown streetscape banners installed during summer months. On that same philosophy, our Chamber developed the first "business friendly" overlay district within the city to make sure that development and redevelopment projects keep us competitive.
Come visit us in our year-round community and visitor information center located in the Chugiak-Eagle River Town Center. Our friendly staff will help answer your questions about where we live and are happy to refer you to appropriate member businesses when you need them. We are here for you and we want to hear from you on how we can be of service!
With warm regards,
