The Lake Champlain Chamber is focused on economic opportunity for all Vermonters and serving as a resource to our business community.
Our mission and programs are best summed up by five distinct points that drive our work:
1. Seeking economic opportunity for all.
Our advocacy team represents our 1,100 members at the local, state, and federal level. We also work outside of the legislative process to influence rulemaking and regulations, serve as an advocate for our members when engaging with agencies and departments, and engage in legal cases that impact our business community.
2. Celebrating business ownership and entrepreneurship.
LaunchVT is a division of the Lake Champlain Chamber that works with its community partners to provide business acceleration programs and resources that empower Vermonters to solve problems and create economic opportunity in their communities.
3. Promoting a great place to live, work and play.
The Lake Champlain Chamber brings visitors to Vermont. Our visitor services team promotes the Lake Champlain region as a welcoming destination where visitors can explore and experience the area’s scenic diversity, rich culture, and close proximity to the state’s outdoor treasures.
4. Cultivating community leadership.
Leadership Champlain is an annual 10-month professional development and community engagement program of the Lake Champlain Chamber with a mission to foster growth and leadership in professionals who will serve our community now and in the future.
5. Nurturing emerging talent.
TalentBTV is a Lake Champlain Chamber initiative that focuses on strengthening our business community’s talent recruitment and retention through programming and connections.
