About the Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce
The Grand Lake Chamber is a not for profit organization 501(c)6), which works to support the Grand Lake business community and promote a sustainable year round economy. The Chamber is contracted by the Town of Grand Lake to manage the Grand Lake Visitor Center and all marketing for the community.
The Chamber is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors and daily operations are managed by the Executive Director and Chamber staff.
As a not for profit, the Chamber is funded through generous grants and by the support of the membership.
The Grand Lake Chamber is now the proud home of The Outstanding Grand Lake Foundation, a 501(c)(3) focused on water conservation, environmental education and sustainable travel.
