2014 Chamber Accomplishments

As we put a wrap on another great year, thank you for your support as members. We’ll put together a more complete annual report to you after the first of the year, but here are a few top of the mind things that the Chamber did in 2014: 

  • Co-founded and led a new group called the Fix North I-25 Business Alliance. So far the Alliance has helped secure $35M for funding to help widen I-25
  • Local economy is growing rapidly
  • Hosted world-renowned author Jim Collins (Built to Last: Good to Great; Great by Choice) on April 16 for 1,050 people at the Lincoln Center
  • Grew membership by net +63
  • Led the successful campaign to renew the county jail tax that is critical for public safety
  • Had the most successful fund raising campaign in Chamber’s history. Our volunteers raised $601,000 in 10 weeks
  • Supported activities to commemorate Fort Collins’ 150thAnniversary including supporting publication of community book
  • Another clean audit
  • Re-grew post-Great Recession revenues to highest in Chamber’s history

Happy New Year!
