Bringing Business Into Eagle

In late 2013, the Business Development was formed to provide a clear business focus for the Eagle Chamber’s activities. Our mission is to drive dollars into our economy, benefiting existing businesses (1) and bringing new businesses (2).

The five (5) goals to support its mission:

1. Spur an ongoing, public conversation about the local economy and how to improve our Chamber Members’ place in it.

2. Plan ONE thing that will drive more tourism into Eagle (bringing dollars with it).

3. Execute ONE strategy that will reduce leakage from our economy (beyond Buy Local, to keep dollars here).

4. Plan ONE thing that will attract new businesses (and dollars) to Eagle.

5. Plan ONE approach to educating our Chamber Members in their top priority areas, to increase their success.
