The Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce, representing its membership, advocates economic vitality, high quality of life and preservation of the free enterprise system through leadership, vision, and communication.
Since 1910, the Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce has helped businesses grow and prosper. After 100 years of service to the Bozeman Community, it is one of the largest and most aggressive business organizations in the state of Montana. On top of business and economic support, we serve Bozeman tourism by promoting the stunning landscapes, vibrant community, endless events and the people that live, work and play in Bozeman.
Guy Sperry, known as “Mr. Bozeman,” served as Chamber Executive for 20 years. His moto, “Build a Better Bozeman,” was the foundation for community-wide efforts to enhance opportunities for all residents. Community involvement has long been inspired by Mr. Sperry’s oft-repeated admonition: “Those of us who enjoy the benefits should not just pick up the apples, but should help to shake the trees!”
Since 1981, the Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce annually selects an individual to receive the prestigious Sperry Award. The award is the Chamber's highest recognition of service to the community and excellence in business.
