Mission Statement: To strengthen member businesses and promote regional prosperity.
The SouthWest Metro Chamber of Commerce works in four major areas:
1. Networking and Committee work
a. Monthly networking events including a Member Orientation, Women's Biz networking, Young Professionals network, Lunchtime Networking & Monthly Member Luncheon.
b. Volunteering opportunities include helping with events, public policy & economic development, networking committees & the foundation committee.
2. Public Policy
a. On a monthly basis the Public Policy & Economic Development Committee meet to talk about policies that effect the local business climate. We also provide the opportunity to head to the Capitol twice a year to speak with our local legislators and also go to the Legislative Priorities Dinner.
3. Economic Development
a. We have combined the ED & PP committee into one that meets monthly. An extension of this committee is our Grow MN! Committee which is comprised of volunteers that go out and learn business trends with local business leaders in the community.
4. Front door to the community
a. We often get calls about various different things whether it's someone calling about a local farmers market or a Christmas program that's going on at a local school. We regularly supply maps, phone books, local business brochures and business cards and relocation packets for people that are new to town.
