The Greater Ruby Valley Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture’s brings businesses, agriculturists, and industry professionals together to benefit the entire community. Once a group of small area chambers, the valley merged in 2005 with the hope that by bringing them together into one Chamber, we’d have more impact. Since then, we’ve been able to provide funding for a variety of community events, provide thousands to local improvement grants for individual businesses, and create a much need platform for online visibility of our local communities and businesses, sharing with travellers, newcomers, and locals alike the great community our valley holds.
Our chamber currently has 155 Businesses
Invests over $2,000 towards community events annually
Boasts a website that gets over 15,000 visitors each year looking for information about our area, our history, things to do, and businesses.
