Why should you join the

Big Sky Chamber of Commerce?

Our Mission

Catalyst

Within our community, several infrastructure needs have been identified such as community housing, energy, telecommunication, transportation, and water. The Big Sky Chamber has been entrusted to be the catalyst for gathering resources to push these conversations forward such as the transportation and housing studies that have resulted in the award of a Federal TIGER Grant and the Community Housing Trust

Convener

The Power of Partnership is key to the success of Big Sky and the Big Sky Chamber of Commerce. In that spirit, we act as impartial conveners – bringing the right parties together to have the right conversations. Our bi-annual Joint County Commissioner meeting invites our county representatives from together in front of their constituents and our concerns.

Champion

The number one priority for the Chamber is to advocate for YOU – our members. We champion and a positive business climate and healthy economy. We use our resources to help with networking, qualified workforce recruitment, education/ training and at the legislative level with lobbying efforts at Chamber Days at the Capitol.

An open letter to the community:

The tragedy that occurred in Minneapolis involving law enforcement and Mr. George Floyd is not reflective of the professionalism, values, or service provided by your law enforcement agencies here in Gallatin County or throughout the state of Montana. The events transpiring across the United States have impacted our nation deeply. We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the larger questions and issues raised that need to be addressed on a national scale and continue at the local level.

The law enforcement agencies of Gallatin County want to assure our citizens that we are committed to serving our communities with accessibility, fairness, and transparency, consistent with our communities’ values. Each agency maintains a strong record of faithful service to our community members in accordance with national best practices, policies, and Montana law.

Collectively, we practice stringent hiring practices with thorough background checks and psychological testing. Throughout their professional careers, law enforcement officers receive rigorous training in all areas including anti-bias, anti-racial profiling, de-escalation, and crisis intervention, as well as recognizing implicit bias. Our agencies have policies in place prohibiting racial profiling as well as use-of-force policies requiring all uses of force to be reviewed at multiple levels.

We are committed to protecting the Constitutional rights of all citizens and value each member of our communities. We believe that diverse backgrounds and perspectives make us stronger as a community.

Trust is earned through our actions and we are devoted to continuing our strong relationship with our community. We will continue our commitment to serving with empathy and the highest professional standards.
