The past few years for the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce have been marked by growth and some clear success. We have made great strides in developing and enhancing member benefits such as premier networking opportunities, signature training events along with money saving programs and we have become more active in civic and governmental issues that impact our members. Not to mention the level of professionalism we have obtained by becoming the only four-star accredited chamber in the state of New Mexico.
We are not stopping there, we continue to move forward by creating a clear path to job creation and business development which is an essential economic foundation in thriving communities. The Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce is committed to taking the leadership role in creating and protecting this important foundation.
Taking our lead from other successful communities, we understand that our focus must be beyond our city and must take in the entire Mesilla Valley region.
While we will continue the good work we have already begun, we will increase our focus in these vital areas:
Work with partners, local businesses and government entities to bolster our regional economy and cultivate a business-friendly culture that generates jobs and new investment.
Develop effective cooperative strategies to take advantage of regional opportunities.
Aide and support our education partners in ongoing efforts to educate and prepare our regional workforce, a vital element to building a vibrant business climate that both attracts new business and allows existing business to continue to grow.
Address quality of life issues with a fair and balanced approach ensuring we maintain a business environment and culture where professionals choose the Mesilla Valley as a place to live, work, and play.
Continue our development of tomorrow’s community leaders with Leadership Las Cruces, Junior Leadership and Las Cruces Young Professionals.
