Promote the Community

The traditional view of chambers of commerce depicts our organizations as “community cheerleaders,” highlighting the activities taking place that make it a great place to live, work and play. Your Greeley Area Chamber of Commerce fulfills this key function through event sponsorship and business promotion. The variety of ways that we promote Greeley and everything great here can be found below.

Small Business Walk

Each year, to celebrate Small Business Week, Greeley Area Chamber volunteers and staff walk the community. We call on small businesses, delivering a small gift to say “thank you for doing business in Greeley!” Along the way, we’ll ask a few questions about how business is going, the challenges they face, and where they’re seeing success. Often, challenges from one business will be repeated by others — providing an opportunity for the Chamber to collaborate with community partners on finding solutions to common problems.

This year, our volunteers walked the week of May 21. Chamber volunteers and staff visited 1000 businesses to say “thanks for keeping Greeley growing!”



This group of volunteers serves as the Chamber’s welcome committee and public relations team. Volunteers from investor businesses encourage communication and Chamber participation by calling on new investors, inviting them to get involved in Chamber programs.

Ambassadors also welcome guests at business connection events and provide support to the Chamber in investor development. They meet monthly just prior to Business After Hours.

New Ambassadors are always welcome. Please contact investorconnectionsdirector@greeleychamber.comfor more information about how you can get involved.

Visit Greeley

As a program of the Chamber, Visit Greeley’s mission is to pursue and support conferences and visitor activities that enhance the economic viability of Greeley and Weld County. Our Visit Greeley staff and committee promote Greeley as a tourism destination and utilize community events as an opportunity to promote member businesses.

We supported the development of a hotel/conference center in downtown Greeley, now under construction, to complement the Union Colony Civic Center and Greeley Recreation Center as conference and event venues. Visit Greeley staff also participate on the Greeley Blues Jam Steering Committee each year.
