What We Do

The Lewis Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce connects its members to people, information and resources they need to make a positive impact on our community.

Leadership LC Valley

Building a Strong Foundation

Leadership LC Valley is the ideal program for preparing the leaders
of tomorrow. The program connects individuals to the community
through a nine month series of educational days featuring topics like
tourism, government & infrastructure, economic development, media, education, healthcare, manufacturing & industry, and non-profits in the LC Valley.

Leadership LC Valley is unlike other programs because it provides participants with the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with key community leaders. Participants study the qualities that make an effective leader, analyze individual leadership roles, and develop personal leadership styles and skills. The personal connections are invaluable to business and civic leadership.

Individual Leadership

  • Cultivate personal leadership and professionals skills for
    long-term growth.
  • Develop a lasting network of peers, across all industries and
    career levels.
  • Strengthen their understanding of the Lewis Clark Valley.
  • Engage with prominent senior leaders in the Lewis Clark
    Valley and surrounding areas.

Leading Organizations

Participants rapidly gain deep community awareness and establish
meaningful connections that help retain valuable employees. Employees develop relationships with peers in other organizations and sectors, learning new approaches to problem solving, and uncovering new resources they can call on in the future.
Employees bring a better understanding of current and potential
key leadership skills back to the office where they can apply them
immediately. Participants become confident leaders by working on real world projects in teams with tight time frames and limited resources.

Ribbon cutting ceremonies are a time of celebration for welcoming new Chamber business to the community. It is the culmination of a lot of hard work and perseverance. A ribbon cutting ceremony is also an opportunity to thank co-workers, friends, suppliers and other entities that have helped the company reach this point.

Each month, we surprise a Chamber member with coffee and donuts. We appreciate our members and thanks to Albertson’s in Clarkston, we can support their coffee and donut habit and feature their business in our monthly newsletter.
