Chamber of Commerce
The Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce is a membership-based organization dedicated to improving the economic vitality of the Mad River Valley.
In early 2017, the MRVCC adopted a comprehensive new strategic plan. The supporting work plan is underway. See an overview of the strategic and work plans>>
The MRVCC’s work is funded through the membership dues of businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals from the Mad River Valley and surrounding area of Vermont. Direct benefits of membership include a variety of marketing, educational, and networking opportunities. Learn more about membership benefits>>
As part of its destination marketing efforts, the MRVCC is the official resource for visitor and traveler information to the Mad River Valley. A new Visitor Center opened in summer 2017.
MAD RIVER VALLEY MARKETING-EVENTS
The MRV-ME program is a voluntary funding program that helps to support local events through grants, based on a competitive application process.
The Chamber community is invited to purchase one or more ‘shares’ in the MRV-ME fund, and participate in the decision process when the event applications are collected. There are additional marketing benefits for members who choose to contribute to the MRV-ME fund: Read more HERE>>

Applications for 2018 events were due by November 30, 2017, and are now closed. Congratulations to our 2018 event grant recipients: FIS Telemark World Cup, Mad Marathon, Vermont Festival of the Arts, and Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition.
