The Billings Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) Board of Directors and staff proudly announce the organization’s strategic priority issues for Fiscal Year 2012-2013. The new and in some cases continued priorities focus on the Chamber/CVB’s mission and vision to nurture a healthy business climate, community and overall quality of life for area residents. At the same time, the priorities focus on offering Chamber/CVB members venues for continued growth and success. Today’s membership is 1,160 businesses strong. Those businesses represent 44,000 employees in the area. The Chamber/CVB is the community’s voice for business advocacy, tourism recruitment, and membership success.
Long Term Strategic Objectives
Chamber/CVB 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/Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) remains dedicated to promoting the business community, advocating for sound public policy, promoting Montana’s Trailhead as tourism and relocation destination, as well as serving members with outstanding educational programs, relationship building events and strong referral/advertising benefits.”
The 2012-2013 strategic issues were decided after meetings, surveys, and discussions between the Billings Chamber/CVB 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.
