The Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce hosted its 117th Annual Celebration Wednesday, April 27, 2022 at the Ranch Events Complex in Loveland. More than 550 Chamber members and others from the area came together to celebrate the success of the Fort Collins Chamber and the business community.

“Business is the cornerstone of the community,” said Ann Hutchison, Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce President & CEO. “Business, across the two-county area, creates $35B in economic activity. That wealth is then distributed through Main Street businesses, parks, streets and services by non-profits and government to the benefit of our community. Building community is all this and more.”
