Summit Daily/Brad Odekirk Constance Jones.

The Summit Chamber of Commerce is celebrating 25 years of service in Summit County with a series of commemorative activities during 2006.

We will pay special tribute to our longtime members who have supported the association, created in 1981 as a regional voice for business. A series of milestone events will be featured in the media, and retrospectives spotlighting individuals who have made a difference will be highlighted in the coming months for their contributions to the chamber and our mountain communities.Our annual report will be published mid-year highlighting the activities of the past year, as well as a historical record of the past quarter century. An inspiring keynote speaker will be featured at our annual meeting and awards breakfast scheduled for June 2, followed by an evening gala event on June 3. The semi-formal event will include dinner, dancing, entertainment, casino gaming, silent auction and a premiere awards presentation.

In the past weeks, our Summit Chamber Diplomats have volunteered many hours calling upon our nearly 600 members as part of the Heart of the Summit campaign, an opportunity to express appreciation to our members for their continued support and to get feedback. Our next Business-After-Hours networking mixer and mini-trade show will be hosted by ResortQuest on Monday, April 10, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Main Street Station in Breckenridge.

The Chamber’s 2006 calendar of events is featured on our new web-site,, and a virtual version of Experience the Summit, our official guide to Summit County is featured on our home page – the spring/summer edition is scheduled for delivery the end of May. The new Summit County area map sponsored by the chamber will be available in April. Watch for the launch of the newly formatted Chamber Connection, our weekly E-newsletter.Educational mini-seminars and workshops on topics impacting our High Country businesses will be co-sponsored quarterly by the Summit Chamber in partnership with local chambers, the Breckenridge Resort Chamber, the Copper Mountain Resort Chamber and the Frisco Chamber. A well attended “Employee Crime Prevention” workshop was presented by Summit County Crime Stoppers in early February and the next membership breakfast is tentatively scheduled for June 29, featuring a panel on Interstate 70 and Highway 9 issues.
