The Vision of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is to provide leadership by improving the quality of life in a world-class destination, renowned for our vibrant economy, dynamic and welcoming community, and treasured environment.
The Mission of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce is to champion the interests of local businesses, enhance their prosperity and strengthen the year-round economic climate of Teton County. To view our full strategic plan, click here.
The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce was founded 75 years ago in 1946 by a group of local business leaders, in order to better promote Jackson Hole as a travel destination. As the Chamber realized success in its original mission, its scope expanded to more traditional Chamber of Commerce activities, including advocates for the local business community and residents who call Jackson Hole home.
While its roots are still firmly planted in destination marketing and management organization framework and activities, the Chamber “Rides for the Brand” each day and champions organizational excellence while recognizing the critical balance of business and quality of life for residents.

“Ride for the Brand” is our brand promise, and is defined by a commitment from the organization to its members, an invitation for others to join the movement, to call for a rallying cry, and to remain strong and forward-looking, just like our Western origins.
Ride for the Brand represents the full spectrum of work and programming the Chamber does, and, the value Chamber members get from their membership: a powerful voice in community affairs looking out for the interests of the business community and the integrity of the Jackson Hole ethos.
“Ride for the Brand” is both a commitment from the organization to its members and the community and an invitation for others to join the movement. A movement that is focused on maintaining the integrity and qualities of life in Jackson Hole while expertly and proactively addressing the new issues and challenges that make the market so dynamic. It is the external, market-facing expression of the organization’s mission and vision.
The brand is the essence of what Jackson Hole stands for: conservation, adventure, community,
and humanity. When we “Ride” for the brand, we are advocates and champions for the integrity and continuity of the best of what Jackson Hole has come to represent to the community and to the world; to ensure that these pillars or strands of Jackson Hole’s DNA are proactively managed and promoted for the quality of life our community thrives on and the quality of experience our visitors expect and deserve.
