  • 2019 LOCAL ALASKA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE OF THE YEAR

    Join the business community. Join the Fairbanks Chamber.
     

  • "Why join the Chamber?"

    The Fairbanks Chamber was established in 1952 by local business people to help local businesses – something that still rings true today. You may be surprised to see how many different ways that is being done. Some of the benefits are direct, such as networking. Still, other benefits are indirect, such as government relations that serve as an advocate for your business, allowing you to succeed.

    Whether you have time to become an active, regular participant or if you never leave your place of work, you can find real, bottom line value in your Chamber membership. We are passionate about improving our community! We are a volunteer driven organization with a 29 member Board of Directors, 5 advocacy committees, and a dedicated staff that work collaboratively to meet our goals and mission. Please contact Brenna Schaake at (907) 374-6704 or Brenna@fairbankschamber.org if you have any questions about becoming a member. 

    We hope you will join us today - it's one investment that you can count on to pay off in many ways!
