Garrison Chamber of Commerce
The Garrison Chamber of Commerce provides community leadership and networking between business leaders in the community. They sponsor the First Dollar of Business promotion, shop local campaign, local welcome wagon packet, are the power behind projects like the City Park bandstand, and organize events held throughout the year. Along with their semi-monthly meetings, they also offer opportunity to join a sub-committee that each have a different focus and meet monthly.
The organization's membership roster is made up of local businesses and non-profit groups. They meet the first and third Monday of every month and usually have 25 to 30 members in attendance for the catered lunch meetings.
Members can sign up to work on a variety of sub-committees that include:
- Executive Committee – meets weekly (Wednesday, Noon, Cenex) as the lead committee for the group.
- Governmental Affairs – meets monthly (Last Monday, Noon, Cenex) with guests that represent entities involved with local leadership, safety and governance.
- Community Development Committee – meets monthly (2nd Monday, Noon, ND Firefighter's Museum/ CVB) to work on projects from public events to local cook-offs to visits to other communities to community improvement projects.
- Trade Promotion Committee – meets monthly (2nd Tuesday, Noon, ND Firefighter's Museum/ CVB) with its own projects designed to enhance and promote local retail businesses. These include Lunch with the Easter Bunny, Aw Shucks Corn Fest, Homecoming parade and the Harvest Market on Main.
