The Kalispell Chamber of Commerce is the longest-standing and leading advocate for the Flathead Valley community and business climate. Since 1904, the Chamber has provided quality programs and services that drive the economic prosperity and sustainability of this lively community. Creating a climate of growth and success has involved efforts to improve opportunity, infrastructure, development, tourism, and education.
We serve a population of 23,000 in Kalispell, 98,000 in Flathead County, and, in the Kalispell Trade Area, more than 150,000. Our 725 diverse member businesses and organizations, which all joined the chamber to promote civic, commercial, and industrial progress, employ more than half of Flathead County’s workforce.
The chamber was founded more than a century ago, and, in 1987, developed into a nonprofit tourism industry representing the City of Kalispell. In 1991, the Kalispell Chamber Foundation, a 501(c), was created to promote and help execute the Chamber’s mission and goals.
