Collaborating to Solve Bend’s Business Challenges

One of our primary jobs at the Bend Chamber is to identify the most pressing issues facing businesses and their employees and tackle them, be that through our Chamber, or more often by collaborating with our business and community partners.

Along with our core areas of support for businesses, including convening and connecting, leadership development, advocacy and resources, the Chamber’s focus has been on workforce development. Workforce and the impacts of the coming recession are the defining issues of the foreseeable future.

As you read through the 2022 Annual Report, you will see our efforts to create more mid-market workforce housing, more childcare openings and build the skills and resiliency of our Central Oregon workforce.
