Summit Chamber launches countywide survey
Summit County – The Summit Chamber of Commerce launched a countywide survey instrument this week. The Summit Business Barometer was conceived with the leadership and support of member partners to fill an expressed need for useful real time information. The results of the confidential survey will assist our local businesses, provide data to potential entrepreneurial start-ups and fulfill relocation requests for emerging business demographic trends. The two-minute electronic survey is designed to take the economic pulse of our local businesses, nonprofits and other members throughout the region on a quarterly basis and compare to state and national trends. Frisco business owner Mark Nunn, Sr., Edward Jones, helped spearhead the program and John Boozer, JBoozer & Associates is coordinating the survey for the Summit Chamber. The confidential responses will be collected and the results tabulated by 11 major business sector categories and their respective business activity reported on a quarterly basis. The general categories selected include: retail stores, retail services, real estate agents, mortgage brokers and title companies; architectural, engineering, construction; service and repair companies; hotel, motel, reservation and property management; restaurants, bars, caterers; licensed professionals and financial services; medical and health professionals; nonprofits, governmental entities, educational organizations and associations; recreational companies and related services. According to the Chamber’s executive director, Constance Jones, “the initiative is designed to fill a gap between other regional economic indicator reports which support business retention and recruitment which will help sustain economic vitality for our mountain communities.” Board president Eric Turner notes the questionnaire will be fine tuned as it evolves over time and members will have an opportunity to submit a question(s) to be included on future surveys.

The collected results will be distributed through the Chamber Connection e-newsletter by the end of the second quarter and posted on the website at http://www.summitchamber.org.For more information contact the Summit Chamber headquarters at (970) 668-2051.
