• Tahoe Chamber strives to bring the best opportunities to the local business community to help them further educate themselves on topics such as business development, tax law, healthcare reform, the economy and more. These luncheons and forums address pressing topics in our community and are scheduled as needed. Past topics have included ADA Compliance, Yelp Reviews, TripAdvisor, and the State of the Economy.

    Our partnerships across the region give us access to some of the best speakers and facilitators in the business.  We want those speakers to come to you, to give you the same access to training and development that those big city businesses have!
