For the first time in a long time, Kane County has officially joined the Kanab Area Chamber of Commerce. Founded in 1967, the chamber has been undergoing a refresh this year, with new leadership and an ongoing effort to modernize the organization’s services and presence in the community.
Kanab Area Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “support the creation of a strong local economy, promote the local business community, provide networking opportunities for its members, and represent local business interests to government entities.” Business or individual memberships cost $100 per year and provide access to the chamber’s business networking and training events, services, and monthly newsletter.
A longtime partner of the chamber, the Kane County Office of Tourism promotes tourism and tourism-related business in the area to help grow the local economy. The chamber’s focus is similar, with the distinction of being available to any individual or business with an interest in the chamber’s objectives. Working together, both organizations are an important part of economic development in the area. In July, the chamber invited the county to join as a sponsor member, an arrangement that would highlight each of the county’s public services as part of the membership.
Commissioner Wade Heaton announced the county’s acceptance of the partnership at the chamber’s July luncheon at the Kanab Center saying, “I want to thank the Kanab Area Chamber of Commerce for all that you do. We’re looking forward to working with you in the future.”
