About The Chamber
Rapid City is a Sure Thing!
The Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce has been around since 1886, making it one of the oldest organizations in the West. When I became the Chamber President in February 2008, I knew I had an enormous responsibility to maintain that tradition. I also realized that I owe a tremendous debt to the Chamber Presidents who preceded me.
The Chamber staff and I take commitment to our members and community seriously. Every day we do everything we can to improve the quality of life here. One of our biggest challenges is to make sure we remain relevant as an organization in a rapidly changing world.
The Chamber is actively involved in promoting public policies—in Rapid City, Pierre, and Washington, D.C.—that benefit western South Dakota. Our monthly Chamber mixers often have between 300 and 1,000 people in attendance, making them the envy of Chambers across the country and a great way to network your business.
I’m so proud to say we have a strong Chamber, with a strong sense of community and members that support one another.

Additionally, we've attracted new businesses, new industries and new employers to our region.
