Chamber Networking

What’s In It For You?

The Cripple Creek & Victor Chamber provides direct and indirect benefits to all of its members.  Below is a partial list of member networking and promotional benefits of your Cripple Creek & Victor Chamber.

Ribbon Cuttings

  • These are very brief events for a photo “moment” for the newsletter.  Board members and members our Ambassador Committee are asked to appear at your business for approximately 15 minutes to organize and pose for a photo for the chamber newsletter, "The Golden Nugget."

    Advance notice of 30 days is requested to allow us time to put your information in the chamber publications. In order to include your information for the newsletter, we need to have the information by the 13th of the month for the following publication.  Photos are used as space allows. Chamber Staff that attends theses events is Executive Director, William Blackburn, and available board and supporting members.

Grand Openings

  • Grand openings are a combination of the above.  In addition, we suggest that your business contact the radio stations directly to coordinate any remote broadcast you may be interested in
