The Hotchkiss Community Chamber of Commerce provides local businesses an opportunity
to tap into essential connections:

To business peers;
To vital ideas;
To its home community.

Our work is broad in approach, but focused in mission---- to promote a healthy business climate in the North Fork Valley and to enhance the overall quality of life in our community. 

We undertake this work in a spirit of collaboration---often working cooperatively with other local civic and business organizations.

The North Fork Valley website, created jointly by the Hotchkiss and Paonia Chambers of Commerce, demonstrates that the fruits of working together often surpass individual efforts.

Together, we continually work to assure that the website is a dynamic and indispensable resource, not only to the visitor to the North Fork Valley, but to the local business community and the residents of our beautiful and unique valley.

The Hotchkiss Chamber is a body of about 90 local community-minded business men and women. Our governing body is elected and all-volunteer, without a paid staff or physical office, which means we are as effective as the involvement of our members.
Our core resources, tasks and activities throughout the year include:
  • This informational website;
  • The well-stocked Visitor Kiosk on the east end of Town;
  • Three event sign-boards at each Town entrance;
  • Hosting networking Business After Hours events;
  • Collaboration with other local Chambers on periodic North Fork Valley Business Symposium;
  • The November Holiday Arts, Crafts, and Business Fair;
  • Promotional support for the annual Antique Fair and Hotchkiss Sheep Camp Stock Dog Trials;
  • Publication of Hotchkiss postcards, available from Hotchkiss merchants;
  • Regular email communications with members and friends about community events;
  • Responding to volumes of inquiries from the public;
  • Facilitating visits from out-of-area organizations such as The Colorado Grand & Ride the Rockies.
In the About Chamber tab of this website you may review our bylaws, policies and meeting minutes, and print out a membership application.  In the Business Directory tab you may search our dynamic database of member businesses. 
Please contact the Chamber if you would like to become involved in our organization or if you feel we could provide you assistance.
