Rapid City Chamber of Commerce


Every year, the Governmental Affairs Committee of the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce hosts several Legislative Crackerbarrels during the South Dakota Legislature's annual session (January to March). Crackerbarrels allow Elevate investors and the community to hear directly from Rapid City area legislators and ask questions concerning 2020’s legislative issues.
