Realizing the positive impact agriculture has on our economy, the committee annually recognizes the producers of the region at a banquet, and awards $1250, $750 and $500 scholarships to area high school seniors that will be seeking higher education. The committee addresses issues which impact our local agriculture providers in both the rural and urban areas, and conducts an annual tour, called Chef, Hop & Vine. The committee meets monthly at noon at a member restaurant.
The Golf Committee plans and organizes the Chamber’s annual golf tournament, which is held every year in June. This group is always looking for golf enthusiasts to join in the fun. They meet as needed throughout the year.
The Government Affairs Committee (GAC) represents Idaho. The goal of the GAC is to advocate for legislation conducive to a healthy business environment at the State, County and City levels and to inform our membership about pertinent issues through the development of Position Statements. The GAC meets on the first Tuesday of the month at noon at the China Inn, except for December due to the Committee hosting the Legislative Send Off Luncheon and May when the Committee hosts the Legislative Welcome Back Luncheon. The Committee does not meet in July. During the legislative session the Committee conducts bi-weekly phone calls with our senator and representatives in Boise during the legislative session.
This committee is involved with the planning and implementation of one of the Chamber’s largest fundraisers that capitalizes on one of the most unique recreational opportunities in our area. This event draws steelhead fishing participants from all over the U.S. and includes a dynamic opening ceremony.
