The Eau Claire Chamber of Commerce offers its members and the community numerous programs and services that not only strengthen its members’ businesses but also make Eau Claire a better place to live.
Education and Business Development
Business and workforce development continues to be an area of focus for the Eau Claire Chamber. Seminars, held throughout the year, help the local workforce obtain the skills they need. The Young Professionals of the Chippewa Valley was created by the Eau Claire Chamber to encourage individuals, ages 21 to 39 years old, to remain in the area’s workforce. Area business leaders develop leadership skills and acquire community education through Leadership Eau Claire™.
The Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce through its Governmental Affairs Committee is committed to being a proactive voice for the business community. It is the Chamber’s goal to keep its members informed on issues that affect them and to facilitate communication between the business community and all levels of government.
