The Buena Vista Chamber of Commerce is an integral part of economic development in Buena Vista. With over 325 members throughout Chaffee County, we are a unified voice that represents the best interest of our small, unique business community. Our staff supports commerce through various marketing and communication efforts, as well as networking and community events; including the Fourth of July Art in the Park Festivities, Gold Rush Days, Christmas Opening and the Chocolate Walk, and monthly Business After Hours networking events. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic the BVCC continued to show leadership and support for our businesses and community members in the valley, most recently serving in the capacities of:
- Being the go-to provider of the most up to date information and resources related to COVID-19 in our community via our website and social media platforms
- Joining the Chaffee County Economic Recovery Team task force that formed through the EDC and Chaffee County Commissioners
- Partnering with the Salida Chamber of Commerce, SBDC, Salida Business Alliance and Office of Economic Development to sponsor a series of situational Lunch and Learn webinar events
- Working with the Association of Colorado Chambers of Commerce and the Chaffee County Visitors Bureau to begin recovery planning for local businesses
