Chamber Catalyst

Have you ever wondered about those awesome bright green lanyards that some of your fellow Chamber members wear? Well, this is the Resource Team. 

They initiate contact with the membership to act as a sounding board and provide additional information on Chamber activities and advocacy. In a recent call from one of our team members to Amanda Campy, with Visual Impressions Photography, she responded by saying that she is "Really enjoying the chamber and community!" Thank you Amanda and we are thrilled you’re enjoying this great Chamber!

If you have a question, they can help be a resource for you. The Resource Team goes out of their way to support their Chamber community while volunteering their time and helping to make the two Chamber expos the best they can be!

"Rain of fish" is an annual weather event in which hundreds of fish rain from the sky onto the Honduran city of Yoro.

Surrounded by the remote Eagle Cap Wilderness, glacial lakes, working ranches and the wide open spaces of Eastern Oregon, The Wallowas are one of Oregon’s most beautiful secrets. Thanks in large part to the gold rush of the 19th century, Eastern Oregon is home to more than a dozen officially designated ghost towns, many of them former gold mining settlements. Look for the near-ghost town of Sumpter, Cornucopia and Homestead.
