Mission & Vision Statements
It is the mission of the Pagosa Springs Area Chamber of Commerce to assist the Members of our business community with development opportunities, resources, advocacy, services and education.
It is the vision of the Pagosa Springs Area Chamber of Commerce to facilitate our community’s transition and growth needs, creating a prosperous future in a business friendly, home town atmosphere.
Having been incorporated in July of 1976, the Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce is currently celebrating over 40 years of serving Pagosa Springs and surrounding communities. The original home of the chamber was a small log cabin located in Town Park on Hermosa Street. Through the generosity of the Town of Pagosa Springs and vision of Archuleta County, the Chamber of Commerce also created a beautiful Visitor Center modeled after the original hot springs bath house and is situated on the banks of the San Juan River which flows through the center of town. The building still houses both entities and its extensive range of literature and services makes it a one-stop shop for residents and visitors alike.
The Chamber of Commerce is a member based organization that promotes and supports the local community through our various educational programs, resource and referral system, economic gardening and special event promotions. With over 400 members, we are known for consistently having one of the highest per capita memberships in the state of Colorado, an honorable achievement for a small mountain community.
The Pagosa Springs Chamber continues to change with the times, staying current with technology including our responsive and mobile website, social media, and educational opportunities for our businesses. Our popular networking events such as the Business After Hours, Business Bites breakfasts and luncheons, or Maximizing Your Membership sessions are a great way to stay current with Pagosa activities and promote and expand your business.
