Chamber / Committees
Chamber committees are great opportunities for members to provide organizational input and strengthen the Chamber community through cooperative action. Chamber committees focus on items of key importance to the local business community and are always open to members interested in sharing their ideas and talents.
The PR wing of the Chamber. Helps to recognize the achievements of St. Peter businesses through ribbon cuttings, ground breakings, and reinvestment ceremonies.
Discusses issues pertinent to public policy. Makes recommendations to the board on the Chamber's position in these matters. Also hosts an annual legislative wrap-up and met the candidate events during election years.
A collaborative effort between the business and education committees. Helps identify mutually-beneficial partnerships between the school district and area businesses.
Members of the Tourism & Visitors Bureau Board of Directors are appointed by the Mayor of St. Peter with the concurrence of the City Council. The Bureau’s purpose is to engage in and conduct, at such times as the Board may determine, efforts to promote the St. Peter area as the site for conventions and business conferences; to increase the number of visitors to St. Peter through improved promotion of services, attractions, and area events; and to develop and promote additional attractions and special events.
The Bureau is funded through a three percent tax, levied by the City, on lodging facilities within the corporate boundaries of St. Peter.
The Chamber coordinates and executes several business promotional events, networking outings, and community celebrations annually. This is achieved in large part through the contributions of dedicated volunteers and staff who commit their energies to making these events successful. Additional help is always needed and participation in a task force can be a great way to build connections and contribute to a rewarding endeavor.
