Valley chamber of commerce closing its physical location indefinitely

The Lewis Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce is indefinitely closing its brick-and-mortar location in a move that will save as much $30,000 a year. The organization’s last day at its office at 825 Sixth St. in Clarkston is Nov. 30, said Chamber President and CEO Kristin Kemak. The group made the decision following a period of almost three months ending in early June where the chamber had to temporarily suspend its office operations to comply with coronavirus restrictions. The chamber’s staff of three full-time employees, one part-time employee and a contracted employee completed a number of projects from home and met regularly via Zoom. Cutting the expense of maintaining an office will ease the financial pressure on the chamber without interfering with its ability to serve members, Kemak said. (Lewiston Tribune)
