Welcome to the Draper Area Chamber of Commerce’s official website. This is an exciting time in the evolution of our growing organization. We want first to thank you for your interest in the hottest small city chamber of commerce in Utah. That designation means a lot to the citizens and businesses of the Southern end of the Wasatch Front.
We pride ourselves in being a promoter of commerce and facilitator of information for our area business community. The Draper Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1995 to support the emerging business community in Draper. Through the years its early founders and organizers like Alan Summerhays, Darrell Smith and John Everett held a consistent vision of the mission the Draper Chamber was created to fulfil. We continue to hold true to the primary mission that was created by these founding members.
By design we are always seeking improvement and growth. We see both of those activities as positive concepts that we will continue to embrace. You will see the Draper Chamber of Commerce continually analyze its membership’s desired involvement in the mainstream of Draper business.
We have convened well-respected local elected officials and business leaders whose primary directive is to keep us abreast of how well city and state businesses are performing. Utilizing this information makes us more relevant. Providing solutions and building self-confidence is what we do best, as well as providing business coaching sessions leading to increased business opportunities for locally owned businesses. We are in the process of launching some revolutionary new program initiatives, which are; the “Hour of Power Networking Sessions”, “The Junior Chamber of Commerce” and “The leading Edge leadership Roundtable”!
If you are a member, thanks for your support. If you are not, consider joining! Your financial support keeps us doing our best work in helping local businesses grow. Stay tuned to our ever-changing website because you will find out the latest information on our major events; monthly general membership luncheons, monthly power networking events, our stellar Awards Gala and our annual golf tournament fundraiser. During the year we host activities that are committee driven such as our new ground breakings and ribbon cuttings, sponsoring local business open house events and a “membership welcoming” group. We urge you to join one of our committees, as smart and articulate business people are always an enhancement to our organization.
The Draper Area Chamber of Commerce is here to lead the growth, development and the rise of strong business development throughout the region. Be a part of the excitement; so that you and your business can be a part of this economic surge for locally owned businesses! The Chamber’s staff and Board of Directors stand ready and prepared to accept the challenge to help your business grow. We look forward to seeing you at one of our many Draper Chamber of Commerce events.
