The Chamber Minute
To ensure that business succeeds and thrives in the Bay Area and key community projects facilitated, the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) is committed to the following Strategic Objectives:
Create a strong local economy
Through supporting the retention and growth of existing local business, focusing on tourism opportunities, supporting industrial development in our area, facilitating new business wanting to relocate here & streamlining the state and local permitting process.
Promote the Community
Through using a positive area marketing message both internally and externally, promoting Oregon’s Adventure Coast, by collaborating with other agencies on product/area branding and by supporting the area’s visitor centers.
Provide Networking Opportunities
The Chamber is the hub of information for business & community, utilizing events like Business after Hours, Wednesday Business Connection, the Economic Outlook Forum, the Chamber Awards Banquet and more, to spread that word, while providing time for businesses to connect.
Represent Business Issues
By advocating for business issues at all levels of government, continuing to research and take positions on issues important to business and community, and by strengthening lobbying efforts with the state.
Build a strong Chamber
Engage new & active members in our committee activities and events; provide a mentoring program to ensure their success and incorporate best practices from Chambers around the state to continue our growth and effectiveness into the future.
Our Focus Areas in 2023
- Chamber Teams—Are the right issue areas covered? How do we create an inertia of motion, again?
- Communication—How do we get our message out and engage the membership. Focus on all elements: email, social media, Newsletters and Face to Face.
- Membership—What do they need? How are they engaged in building our successful business and community climate?
- Advocacy—How can we be effective on all levels: local, county and state? What kind of team do we need to accomplish that?
