2016-17 Chair of the Board

In uncertain times, we look for stability. In the midst of great change, we value dependability. And in both cases, smart and forward-thinking allies are essential in helping business leaders like you to navigate the often choppy waters of our complex global economy.

I´m proud and happy to tell you that your Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce delivers in all areas as we advocate for businesses big and small - and business generally-throughout the year.

No doubt you know, as a Chamber member, that our services, resources and programs are designed to help you lead and make sound decisions in a rapidly moving world.

But did you know that´s only part of what we do? On Jan. 10, the South Dakota Legislature convenes and we´ll be there - monitoring the progress of every key bill, studying how proposed legislation might affect Sioux Falls and shape your business, creating opportunities for your voice to be heard in the state capitol.

This issue of Chamber News, for example, highlights Sioux Falls area legislators and includes contact information for each. They want and need to hear from you, and we will be arranging chances to share your views. Look for more details soon.

But if you can´t make it to Pierre, or take the time to call a key lawmaker, we´re there for you. Our staff will be communicating important legislative developments in the weekly electronic newsletter, The Chamber Advocate. And you can get instant information through our Twitter account, @SFAreaAdvocate.

Chamber staff also ranks bills by their importance to you. I encourage you to take advantage of this wealth of information to be better informed about the upcoming legislative session.

Chamber membership certainly has its privileges and timely access to important information is a big one. But we´re interested in what other kinds of information you might need to better understand decision making in Pierre. We also want to know how you´d like it delivered. In our digital world, you and I might consume news and information differently - and we want the Chamber to serve the interests of all members. Please let us know. Email us at

Meantime, on behalf of all of us here at the Chamber, thanks for all you do for our city. Here´s to a great 2017!
