THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE COMMITTEES
Each year many of the Chamber of Commerce nearly 600 members participate in the four active committees of the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce. In addition to the committees listed here the Chamber of Commerce coordinates task forces that meet on an as needed basis throughout the year to focus on issues of importance to the Cody business community. Each committee and task force has its own unique set of goals and objectives and there is a committee to fit every volunteer! With an active and energetic group of volunteers the Chamber can accomplish collectively what no one member can do individually.
The 25 Cody Chamber Ambassadors are goodwill representatives who welcome new businesses and volunteer hundreds of hours at ribbon cuttings, open houses, and events including conventions, sports tournaments and the Buffalo Bill Art Show & Sale. This is the group that is "in the know" and on the streets as active participants in the Cody community. This group meets the first Wednesday of the month at 12 p.m. at Cassie’s Supper Club, unless otherwise stated on our events calendar.
With over 20 dedicated volunteers, the Buffalo Bill Art Show and Sale committee is in charge of our largest event and fundraiser. The proceeds go to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce, and other art organizations in and around Cody while promoting our town as an arts community by cooperatively sponsoring a nationally renowned Western art show and sale. This group of enthusiastic volunteers works year-round to produce the Art Show that attracts visitors from around the world each September as part of the Rendezvous Royale arts celebration.
The Cody Country Chamber of Commerce is very active in planning events throughout the year. Two of our most popular community events – the Christmas Stroll and Parade and the Spring Fling/St. Patrick’s Day Parade are coordinated by the Cody Events Committee. This group of dedicated volunteers works hard to promote our community – especially retailers and restaurants – during Cody’s quieter seasons.
The Membership Committee shall be responsible for recruiting, retaining and surveying the members of the Chamber. It is additionally responsible for developing and carrying out a series of programs for the Chamber membership including Cody Club and the Founder’s Day Dinner.
