Chamber of Commerce
Mission: The Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce is a member focused organization and community partner that fosters a sustainable, healthy and vibrant economic environment through business promotion, education and services.
The Chamber is uniquely positioned to expose a fellow to a wide variety of issues and initiatives which should be more than sufficient to support his or her intellectual and professional interests for an academic year. At the Chamber, a fellow will be exposed to the inner-workings and management of a non-profit organization, while also interacting with and representing the interests of the Chamber's members the vast majority of which are for-profit small businesses. The Chamber has launched a multi-pronged economic development initiative, which we have entitled the Chamber Works Project, which should offer the fellow a diverse set of issues to work on depending upon his or her interests and academic focus.
