Successful business owners talk with their peers and refer business to people they trust – from art galleries to house painters, auto mechanics, and bike shops. The Truckee Chamber produces several key programs and opportunities for networking, referral business opportunities, training, learning, and being involved as a leader in our community.

Whether you are new to the community or have lived here for years, hearing from our leaders in the community is an enjoyable way to stay on top of important issues, connect and engage. One of the great things about living in a small community like Truckee is that you can personally know your leaders and work with them to make a difference.
The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program creates an opportunity for potential leaders to broaden their understanding of the region and its issues, challenges and opportunities, while developing and honing their leadership skills. Since 2004, the program has graduated 400+ leaders. These alumni are now challenging themselves, serving their employers and our community in a variety of active community-building efforts.
Some of the main tenants of the program are networking, public speaking, and leadership skills development, including: effective decision making, problem solving, team dynamics, personality traits, change management. During each workshop, time is also spent on exploring regional issues such as environment, affordable housing, transportation, local food sources, planning for the future, and non-profit advocacy.
Applications open in the fall for the 19th year of this award-winning program which will begin January 2023.
The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program is a collaborative project of three Founding Partners including the Truckee Chamber of Commerce, North Tahoe Business Association, and the North Lake Tahoe Chamber/CVB/Resort Association. The Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation is the fiscal sponsor.
Throughout the year, Chamber member business host after-hours open house at their business, inviting attendees to a first-hand view of their business and products. This is a great opportunity to connect with engaged community members to form meaningful business relationships. The popular saying “People do business with people they know, like and trust” holds true, and attending a Chamber Mixer allows you the opportunity to know more people in the community.
There is no better way to put a face to your business than attending or hosting a Chamber Mixer at your business. Contact us to learn more.
A great way to celebrate opening your doors is with a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting ceremony and/or photo opportunity. By partnering with the Truckee Chamber for a ribbon cutting, we will coordinate with the Town of Truckee to arrange for the Mayor to attend to welcome and congratulate you on your opening and be available for a photo opportunity that will be distributed to local media and through social media platforms.

In 2023, the Truckee Chamber launched a monthly Lunch & Learn program the second Wednesday of every month. Why? We want to learn from experts – digging deeper for information on initiatives that affect our businesses – and we want to learn from you so we can better advocate for our local organizations.
Lunch & Learn is a free monthly forum for members to come together to hear from a speaker and then discuss ideas, concerns, and best outcomes in a roundtable discussion format. Attendees are asked to bring their lunch and the Chamber provides drinks and dessert. Some of the topics are Economic Development Programs, Truckee’s proposed Single-Use Plastic Ban, and How to Network and Leverage Referral Marketing, and many more.
Supporting our local businesses has never been more important. As consumer culture continues to prioritize monster online retailers over local stores, the Truckee Chamber of Commerce encourages all residents and visitors to make supporting our local community a way of life every day.
When we all commit to this, the impact on our community is significant. Our small businesses are owned and operated by our friends and neighbors. They are always there to give to our community through donations to nonprofits, sports team sponsorships, and more. We each can do our part by shopping, dining, and utilizing local services—365 days a year
The fact is that monster online retailers will never be able to connect with our community, to give shoppers personalized, memorable experiences, or sell unique, quality goods. The local aspect is where our small businesses excel—they know our names, they know our families, they care about us. Only WE can care about our community.
The Be Local 365 program encourages residents and visitors to make supporting our local community a way of life, including shopping, dining, and using local services and products..
This is about believing and embracing the fact that we are community-minded people that think first about where we can spend our money, locally, in the community where we live, work and play. By adopting this culture, it positions our community for long-term success. We are the only ones capable of building a strong economy… from the inside out. We know that our dollars will continue to work for us by funding critical public services and making our community a vibrant place where business can thrive. We know the impact that every one of our hard-earned dollars can have on the vitality of our community where we live. We know that our money in the deep pockets of monster online retailers will do nothing for our community. We know that by shopping more consciously, we can each do our part to contribute to the sustainability of Truckee.
Be Local 365 is not a holiday promotion, it is not an event, it is not some ﬂeeting campaign. It is a daily practice that can make our community stronger. Let’s make it a way of life. Truckee shops local–365 days a year.
