The Pelican Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce is a strong, progressive, community minded volunteer organization. It is comprised of individuals, both business and non-business, who meet the challenges of making the greater Pelican Rapids area a strong retail trade market, an exciting tourism destination and a safe, comfortable and prosperous community.

We are dedicated to the betterment of our area businesses, education and community. Tourism also plays an important role in our area. You, as part of this area community, have a vested interest in it. Together we can promote our businesses and community through the Chamber’s various activities.

The Chamber actively promotes the business potential, growth and profitability of the greater Pelican Rapids area. We receive many inquiries via telephone, walk-ins and e-mail, which we respond to promptly with brochures and informational materials of our members.

Our Chamber is a volunteer organization made up of people just like you. We band together to enhance and promote this area’s retail commerce, industries, tourism, agriculture, education, local and state government, recreation and consumer relations.

We are funded through membership dues, fund raising events and donations from generous businesses, organizations and individuals.

A ten member Board of Directors provides leadership for the Chamber. They are selected from the general membership and provide the membership with direction, planning and policies. In addition to planning and policies, the Board provides an important liaison between the Chamber and other community organizations.

As a participating member of the Chamber organization, you make things happen. Chamber membership is a unique opportunity to keep you in the mainstream of our community and gives you the privilege of shaping the community’s economic and civic growth. That’s why the Chamber needs you as an active member and you need the Chamber. Together we can turn our community’s dreams into reality.

Let’s work together for individual and community prosperity. Membership is an investment circle, with you at the beginning and end.
