Chamber in Pictures
Ag-Farm Tours conducted by Claudia Stewart, is a great way to introduce our community to Agri-Tourism. Tourism is a great opportunity to showcase Gresham and expand our local economy. Thank you Boring Hemp Farm for being part of the Ag-Farm tour. Your hospitality and information about a newer industry was enjoyed by all who made the trip. (No pun intended.)

The Gresham Chamber not only helped sponsor the Teddy Bear Parade, a long standing community event, we made sure it was safe and fun. Thank you Angela, Chamber staff, for working early on a Saturday morning the day of the parade and for Oregonians Credit Union, who provided a fun “float” full of teddy bears.
Chamber Works !
The Chamber tirelessly markets on all levels. Your chamber produces and distributes over 45,000 publications including maps, directories, coupon book, bike maps and more.
