The Pagosa Springs Chamber hosts fun-filled community events that attract both locals and visitors from all across the map. Whether it’s the massive balloon ascensions that draw people to the events, the delectable food and drink, the crazy winter antics, the variety of activities, or the beauty of classic cars, our events promise something for everyone!
The Chamber of Commerce holds monthly board meetings, which are open to the public. The schedule for meetings is determined at the beginning of each year, following the election of three incoming board members at our Annual Meeting in February.
The Pagosa Chamber hosts Annual Membership Meetings every February. These are much more than regular meetings! They bring chamber members together to celebrate the successes of the community and the Chamber over the past year; they bring fellow business owners together to network and socialize; they provide a platform to announce community awards, have a conversation about important business topics and welcome new board members.
Business Happy Hours
Business Happy Hour receptions are perfect for a new business, a business that has added a feature or expanded their services, or a great way to bring recognition to your existing business. Signing up to host a reception occurs during the month of October through a lottery system. We encourage businesses to partner for a Business Happy Hour event, especially if you are a home-based business or your business is located in a plaza adjacent to other chamber businesses. For more information about hosting a Business Happy Hour reception, contact the Chamber.
The Chamber offers a myriad of educational programs throughout the year including Starting Your Business, Understanding Financials, Marketing and many other topics. The sessions usually last one hour. Contact the Chamber or check the calendar for the topic and location.
Maximizing Your Membership
Maximizing Your Membership is a service offered to Chamber members or businesses interested in becoming a Chamber member where your Chamber benefits are reviewed. This session will aid you in utilizing the Chamber website to the best of YOUR advantage and gives you content management control. The short class also informs you of various sponsorship and advertising opportunities and services offered by the Chamber at little or no cost and how your business can best utilize the benefits offered through your membership. Maximizing Your Membership classes are held once a month on Tuesday at 8 a.m., typically the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Check the Chamber calendar or call for time and location.
