Tourism Education Committee
The Tourism Education Committee works on several projects that focus on boosting tourism and promoting Pendleton to strengthen local business and our vibrant community. The Chamber acts as the marketing arm of and for the city and promotes Pendleton as an exciting visitor destination. The overarching goal of the committee is to increase tourism in Pendleton, which brings more tourism dollars to the local economy and expands Pendleton’s legendary reputation. Tourism growth assists with existing business retention and growth as well as encouraging new businesses to be created. Members and the community see direct benefits from marketing and advertising efforts by the Chamber.
The Membership Committee meets monthly. During that meeting, they plan the Monthly Membership Luncheons and Business Workshops. They work hard to ensure that benefits received by members return more than the investments made, give direction to staff regarding improvements to member services and communications, and help with special projects regarding membership.
The Membership Committee works closely with the Membership Coordinator. If you are interested in learning more about this committee, contact the Membership Coordinator at email@example.com or by calling 541-276-7411.
