    Welcome to the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce – Online!

    Our Chamber is the premier advocacy organization for business in Fairbanks dedicated to advancing the prosperity of the Interior, improving the business climate, advocating on behalf of our members and offering networking and promotional opportunities through seminars, forums, annual events and more! The Chamber works in conjunction with citizens, businesses and organizations, educational and governmental partners to provide a positive business environment and improve the quality of life in Fairbanks.

    The many priorities of the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce include supporting a sustainable fiscal plan for the State of Alaska, reducing the high cost of energy, encouraging new oil production, supporting reforms to criminal justice, medicaid and workers' compensation, and supporting the funding necessary to complete the University of Alaska Fairbanks Engineering Building. Our Advocacy Committees monitor business-related legislation at the local, state and federal levels and measures its possible effects on the business community. All of our committees work diligently to establish and maintain relationships with the local, state and federal government. With 5 extremely active advocacy committees, I encourage you to get involved to help make a difference.

    In addition to our business advocacy efforts, the Chamber offers many programs and events that help promote your business. To make the most of your membership, I strongly encourage you and your employees to participate in the activities of the Chamber. Join a committee that focuses on a topic that interests you, sponsor and attend a Chamber event, or network with other local business leaders and professionals at our weekly luncheons and business after hours events.

    I invite you to be an active part of our team and work side-by-side with business people who are as devoted to the community’s success as you are. I guarantee that you will find your investment and your efforts to be rewarding and fun! As always we thank you for your commitment to the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce!
