Here's how things work in the Farmington Chamber of Commerce

The heat of the summer is here and the Chamber of Commerce is enjoying all that the summer has to offer.  

Wasn’t it so nice to get a little rain? Please pray for more, and continue to keep our friends up North in your thoughts and prayers.

People are always asking me how the Chamber is doing and what is going on. The Chamber is doing very well, and there is always something going on.  

A ribbon cutting took place at Real Estate Pros, 4100 E. Main St.

The Chamber is here to help businesses and our community. That is our main focus. We know that every business is different and so are their needs.  

Orange Castle Frozen Yogurt opened at 219 E. Main St. in June.

As a chamber, we try to have resources available to meet those needs. One of the resources we offer is each month one of our member hosts Business After Hours. This is a time for members to come together to network, get to know one another, or just enjoy themselves.  

On June 18 OSO Grande Coffee Company, 2214 San Juan Blvd. held a ribbon cutting.

We also offer training seminars to our members giving them information to help make their business more successful. The best and most helpful resource we offer is giving out referrals.  

From time to time I see on Facebook people asking for recommendations. There is no need to ask on Facebook, just call the Chamber and we will be more than happy to give you a recommendation. These are just a few of the resources we offer.  

The Chamber is governed by a board of directors who review the chamber’s finances and make sure we are using the chamber’s funds for the good of our members, and that we are following our mission.  

The long-awaited Navajo Museum at 301 W. Main St. opened its doors, ang the Redcoats were there.

For more information please feel free to call or stop by the Chamber.

Mark your calendars now – Connie Mack will be held on Aug. 3-Aug. 11 and the San Juan County Fair will be held on Aug. 14 – Aug. 19.  

These are two events that you don’t want to miss out on.  

Remember, you can always stop by the Chamber office for all the latest news that is happening in the community, or give us a call. Our office is located at 100 W. Broadway and our phone number is 505-325-0279. 

We would love to see you. 

The Farmington Chamber is organized for the purpose of serving and advancing the civic and business interest of the City of Farmington and the Four Corners region.

Audra Winters is the President/CEO of the Farmington Chamber of Commerce.
