Summit County Chamber of Commerce partners with Dillon Business Association
September 16, 2013
Both organizations offer networking and educational opportunities for local businesses. The DBA will remain an independent organization based in town, but the new partnership has the potential to increase membership, benefits, communication and marketing across the business community.
Mark Nunn, SCoC president, said working with the DBA will help maximize business growth in both organizations.
"It's still specific to each town, to represent their best interests," he said. "We look at the organizations already in existence around the county and try to utilize those with the right people and structures already in place."
The SCoC is already working with the Silverthorne business community, the Frisco Chamber of Commerce and the Copper Mountain Resort Association.
In a prepared statement, Bill Falcone, DBA president, said the partnership will increase networking opportunities and help improve the economic climate for businesses in Summit County.

"The Chamber is making great strides in acting as the regional voice for our businesses at the county and state levels," he said. "These partnerships and affiliations will provide it with the unique ability to market Summit County."
Every chapter of the SCoC is asked to sponsor two events during the year, such as mixers. Two board representatives from every town chapter represent their organizations at the SCoC. Part of the membership agreement includes funding to the individual chapters as well.
"There will be more coordination and communication between towns," Nunn said. "With Dillon, this is a way to help promote what they're doing to the general Summit Chamber membership, and vice versa."
Nunn said the SCoC plans to continue to build partnerships with other business organizations and community groups in the county.
