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). The Crackerbarrels allow Chamber members and the community at-large to hear from Rapid City area legislators and ask questions concerning the issues before them.

Crackerbarrels are held on several Saturdays during the session from 9 - 11 a.m. and are free and open to the public.

We thank both the South Dakota School of Mines and Western Dakota Tech for hosting these events on their campuses.
