Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce

Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce Committees

The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce champions the interests of local businesses, enhances their prosperity, and strengthens Teton County’s economic climate.

Much of what we do is thanks to community leaders who volunteer their time for the betterment of the valley and local business.

Our volunteers help on the ground to make an event run seamlessly, some sit on volunteer committees that help guide the direction of the organization and from there some join the Board of Directors who govern all that the Chamber does. Being on a Committee is an opportunity to gain leadership skills and to get to know other business professionals. 

Want to get involved?

Chamber members have the opportunity to participate on committees that play significant roles in directing Chamber efforts. The Chamber Board of Directors, Executive Committee and staff select members for these committees based on the level of expertise in the areas of marketing, events, business development, young professionals, government and community affairs. If you’d like to get involved by volunteering on a Chamber Committee, email Operations Manager, Riley Frances Harris at for more information.
