The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1946 by a group of local business leaders in order to better promote Jackson Hole as a travel destination. As the Chamber realized success in its original mission, its scope expanded to more traditional Chamber of Commerce activities, including advocates for the local business community.
While its roots are still firmly planted in destination marketing organization framework and
activities, its scope has expanded to be a champion for every business that either directly benefits
from the travel/tourism economy, or, has moved their business to Jackson Hole because of the
quality of life related to the reasons people visit Jackson.
