Scramble for Commerce Golf Tournament
In May, the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual golf tournament at the Idaho Falls Country Club. The Scramble for Commerce Golf Tournament provides a casual way for local businesses to showcase their products and services. It is also a great way for business professionals to expand their professional networks. This year we were happy to host 36 teams of four players, and 19 active hole sponsors.

Chamber Night with the Chukars
Nothing goes better together than summer and baseball. Throw in the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce and you have yourself one of the best nights of the year! Every August the Chamber takes over Melaleuca Field for Chamber Night with the Chukars. At this years’ Chamber Night, Senator Mike Crapo honored the Idaho Falls Bandits with the Spirit of Idaho Award, Chamber Ambassador, Don Williams, threw out the honorary first pitch, and our member businesses were able to enjoy the game compliments of the Chamber and the Idaho Falls Chukars.
In August, the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce hosted its first ever Summer Celebration. This year’s theme was Country Summer. The night consisted of dinner from Black Hawk BBQ and custom drinks from Yeti Jane Sips & Snacks. Entertainment included country line dancing lessons and a private concert from local country music artist, Dalton Dummer. Patrons also enjoyed a no-host bar, a photobooth and a mechanical bull.
The Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce facilitated over 100 ribbon cuttings for member businesses in 2022. The Chamber loves to celebrate new businesses and is eager to welcome them into our organization. Ribbon cuttings are the best way to introduce new businesses into the community. They increase your company’s visibility and establish meaningful relationships with business leaders, city officials, and community members. Ribbon cuttings aren’t just for new member businesses, the Chamber is happy to celebrate member businesses who have remodeled or moved to a new location or are celebrating a major milestone or anniversary.
