Chamber President and CEO John Brewer says, “For more than 100 years, the Billings Chamber of Commerce has been the most influential business organization in the region.”  Brewer adds, “Today, the Billings Chamber remains dedicated to promoting the business community, advocating for sound public policy, promoting Montana’s Trailhead as a tourism and relocation destination, as well as serving members with outstanding educational programs, relationship building events and strong referral/advertising benefits.”

The 2014-2015 strategic issues were decided after meetings, surveys, and discussions between the Billings Chamber Board of Directors, members, staff and partners including Big Sky Economic Development, the City of Billings and Yellowstone County.  The priorities are the newly adopted focuses of the organization for the next year and in some cases, beyond.
