Chamber/EDA/CVB Partnership

Karen VanKeulen
We have greatly increased our financial efficiency and marketing materials by partnering three entities.
Our Chamber has a unique situation in that we are partnered with the Economic Development Authority (EDA), and Convention Visitors Bureau (CVB). We are housed in the same office and share staff, equipment and supplies. In 2011, our Marshall EDA Director and Lyon County EDA Director both moved on to different jobs. We forged a partnership with the City of Marshall and Lyon County and Cal Brink, Chamber Director brought both departments under the Chamber umbrella. The CVB came under the Chamber umbrella in 2014. The Chamber and CVB had always shared office space, but realized much greater efficiency when we partnered. These partnerships are all done through a contract for services with Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce.
