Mixing Business with Pleasure
Formation of the Coeur d’Alene Chamber
According to local historian Robert Singletary, in 1912, a local businessmen’s group called the Commercial Club held a series of meetings with the thought of creating an organization focused on a more serious approach to attracting and creating business for the growing community. The most important meeting was held aboard the steamboat Colfax while it cruised Lake Coeur d’Alene. The scenic ride resulted in the formation of the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce and hence continued a tradition of mixing business with pleasure.
The Values That Drive Our Organization
By thinking in the long-term, taking a big-picture approach, and being an originator of change, you can be a catalyst for change rather than a reactionary responder. As a result, we will incorporate all community stakeholders in policy development and serve as a catalyst for collaboration.
Maintain a flexible, responsive organization that caters to the different needs of our members. Engage our members in specific topics and activities so that we may work together to meet the needs of business and the community.
