Council Chamber of Commerce


Home of the World Famous Porcupine Races 


The Chamber’s mission consists of 4 focus areas:

  • Business Support
  • Economic Development
  • Sponsoring Community Events
  • Working with Community Partners

Business Support

Supporting existing and new business is core to our mission as a Chamber.  Our local small businesses are important to the families that own them, to the community that supports them, and to sustaining our residents way of life.

Economic Development

 We as a Chamber are intent on developing resources for encouraging economic success in our corner of Idaho.  The Chamber will be pursuing grants and other funding opportunities to further these goals.

Community Events

The World Famous Porcupine Races and our patriotic 4th of July parade & fireworks are sponsored each year by the Chamber.  The Chamber sponsors several events each year that could not be successful without our volunteers.

Community Partners

 The Chamber actively supports non-profits and government entities in our community to provide greater economic opportunities and to provide a  broader avenue to promote the area.  We are grateful for our community partners who are critical to our success.
