As we approach Thanksgiving, the Coeur d’Alene Regional Chamber of Commerce would like to take a moment to reflect on the blessings we’ve received throughout the year. This season of gratitude is especially significant for us, and we want to express our heartfelt thanks for the pillars that make our Chamber and community thrive.
Expressing Gratitude: What We Appreciate at the CDA Regional Chamber
First and foremost, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated individuals who lead our chamber into the future – our wonderful board of directors, our committee members, and volunteers who serve in our Visitors Center and at our events throughout the year. Giving their precious gifts of time and talent, their unwavering commitment, energy and efforts are the driving force behind our chamber’s success. Through their leadership, we continue to grow and serve our community with passion and purpose.
Our members consistently say yes to strategic engagements that drive powerful community impact. Most notably, in 2023, our members donated $238,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors, sponsored 310 high school and college students to attend chamber events, creating a beautiful opportunity for students to connect and build relationships with business leaders, and raised $18,500 for CDAIDE through the Leadership Classic Golf Tournament. Our members consistently rise to the occasion and demonstrate their commitment to making a positive impact in our community.
Our Visitors Center
We are also so excited for and blessed by the revitalization of our new Visitors Center this year. This project wouldn’t have been possible without the generous leadership of our revitalization committee as well as the contributions of time, talent and treasures donated by local member organizations. We want to acknowledge and express our thanks to igniteCDA for their generous grant of $263,000. Thank you also to Architects West, City of Coeur d’Alene, Clearwater Summit Group, Northwest Specialty Hospital, and StanCraft Construction Group for bringing our vision into a reality. We are so grateful for this beautiful space to use for community, special events and visitors. The collective contributions are a testament to the collaborative spirit that makes Coeur d’Alene a special place to live.
Finally, we sincerely thank our Chamber staff, the heroes behind the scenes who work selflessly to bring visionary leadership and exceptional member experiences to life. To each member of our dedicated chamber family, we appreciate your hard work, heart to serve, positive attitude and excellence in all that you do.
As we gather with loved ones this Thanksgiving, the Coeur d’Alene Regional Chamber is filled with gratitude for the past year’s achievements and the bright future ahead. We thank everyone who has played a role in making our chamber a vibrant and thriving community resource. Happy Thanksgiving!
