Chamber Networking Opportunities

The Columbia Fall Area Chamber of Commerce is a business oriented membership organization whose purpose is to promote member businesses to each other, residents and visitors. We offer educational, networking, advertising and economic development opportunities through a variety of regularly scheduled Chamber sponsored events. We also share information with our membership through regular E-newsletters, press releases, radio interviews and social media.

Join us on the second Tuesday of the month September through May for our General Membership Luncheons at the Cedar Creek Lodge in Columbia Falls. Lunches are catered by rotating member catering businesses, and the optional lunch is $14 per person, inclusive of gratuity. Each month we feature a presenter who gives a 30-45 minutes presentation pertinent to the business environment followed by member businesses sharing about their business. The Columbia Falls Area Chamber is the only Chamber in the Flathead Valley that offers this unique member business sharing opportunity as well as smaller scale networking at tables. Lunch service and networking begins at 11:30am and the one hour program begins at noon.
