Truckee Chamber

Programs & Networking Opportunities

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

Good Morning Truckee

They actively identify strategies to support businesses, foster entrepreneurship, encourage investment and innovation, create job opportunities, and improve the business climate.

In addition to economic sustainability, the committee prioritizes workforce development by collaborating with educational institutions, vocational training centers, and workforce development agencies to align curriculum, training programs, and resources with local industry needs. This helps close skill gaps, increase employment opportunities, and empower individuals to thrive in the evolving job market.

The committee serves as a bridge between the Chamber of Commerce and the broader community, advocating for policies and initiatives that support business growth and talent development. Ultimately, their efforts contribute to the long-term prosperity and competitiveness of the local business community.

The Truckee Chamber of  Commerce is undertaking a Business Landscape Study of the Town of Truckee. This comprehensive study of the businesses operating within a community serves several critical purposes that can significantly benefit the local economy, the community and the Chamber itself.

Mixers & Ribbon Cuttings



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.

Lunch & Learn


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.

TNT Tech Teens


 Equipping Future Workforce Through a Hands-on Tech Immersion Program

The Town of Truckee, Tahoe Truckee Unified School District, Truckee Donner Public Utility District, Tahoe Forest Hospital, Tahoe Truckee Airport District, and the Truckee Chamber of Commerce are excited to announce the launch of Truckee North Tahoe Tech Teens (TNT Tech Teens), a new workforce initiative focused on promoting the diverse range of tech-related jobs available to our Truckee and Tahoe students.

This month-long series, starting on Thursday, April 11, 2024, and running weekly through Thursday, May 9, 2024 will expose Truckee/North Tahoe high school students to a variety of technology sectors, highlighting their practical applications in different career fields. The goal is to inspire and prepare students for diverse opportunities in our region. This new program benefits students and participating organizations by boosting community engagement, building connections with potential future talent, and nurturing a workforce adept in various modern skills. 

“We are excited to unveil the hidden systems that keep Truckee running,” says the program creator and Chief Information Security and Technology Officer for the Town of Truckee, Chris Hardy. “I am thankful for the work the TNT Tech Teens partner agencies for making this program a reality and helping to expose our local youth to potential jobs in our community.”

Local high schoolers are invited to take a dive deep into the technology powering our community and learn the “behind the scenes” of how important technology is to the success of Truckee. Over the five weeks, students will get hands-on learning at key locations and get to explore technologies such as Air Traffic Control towers at the Tahoe Truckee Airport, surgery robots at Tahoe Forest Hospital, and policing technologies in action at the Town of Truckee. The TNT Tech Teens program culminates with a career-building workshop, equipping students with valuable resume and interview skills. Students who complete the full program will receive a certificate of completion from the Town of Truckee Mayor. 

TNT Tech Teens is open to all 9th-12th grade students living in Truckee and North Lake Tahoe. Students interested in participating in the program must apply to the program by Friday, March 15, 2024.
