As the Chair of the Medford/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, it is an honor to represent an organization that supports and partners with over 1,000 local chamber member businesses in this beautiful area.  The Medford/Jackson County Chamber of Commerce is a respected voice across the State of Oregon, and more importantly, here in our home town. We are here to serve as your voice in creating a strong economy. Through diligent efforts that foster a positive and responsible climate for economic development, your chamber works to encourage family wage jobs, support educational excellence, and promote tourism. Your chamber is adept at promoting the community through a variety of outreach efforts, including engaging websites, promotional videos, and publications, as well as attracting conventions and other large events to the area.

A safe and friendly community, combined with a healthy business climate creates a better quality of life for every citizen. Your chamber has served to protect local businesses, bring needed resources to the Rogue Valley, and provide an environment where your business can thrive. I am proud to be a part of your chamber and the role the chamber plays in the success and sustainability of the Rogue Valley.
