CHAMBER CHAIRMAN 1.5 What a tremendous privilege it has been to serve as the 2016 Chairman of the Board of the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce. As a community, we stand strong when we stand as one, and our outstanding Chamber of Commerce plays an integral part in keeping our community together. I would like to thank our distinguished Board of Directors. Our Board is made up of some of our community’s very best. They volunteer their time, energy and talent to help carry forward and guide the Chamber to ensure that we provide the best possible service to our membership. Thank you to our president, Steve Wilson, and his energetic, dedicated Chamber staff for their hard work and commitment to Coeur d’Alene and the success of our business community. They bring a level of knowledge and professionalism that is vital to keeping it all running. Great job to all of you! Thank you to our hardworking committees, affiliates, and volunteers, who are the engine that moves the Chamber forward. And finally, thank you to our members who are truly the heart of the Chamber. At the beginning of the year, we set out with one overarching goal: How do we make it better for the next person? That type of goal really never ends, but I think we all can feel good about moving in that direction. Thanks to the foundation laid by J.J. Jaeger, the foundational gift from Gary Schneidmiller and the giving spirit of our Chamber members and our community, we were able to make the first

principal reduction At the beginning of the payment against year, we set out with one the mortgage on the overarching goal: “How do we make Chamber building. We are also optimistic it better for the next person?” that we will make another payment next year. These reductions of our debt will save the Chamber thousands of dollars in interest and allow our staff to put more time into the primary purpose – to serve its members. Thanks to Steve and the staff, the changes to Ironman went smoothly and will continue to bring more visitors and competitors than ever to our community. Your Public Policy Committee held a very successful Legislative Forum where we emphasized long-term planning and infrastructure, so gridlock doesn’t damage our economy. And the Leadership Committee rolled out a new well-structured program, the Advanced Leadership Class, to take the development of our community leaders to an even higher level. As always, the Chamber continues to present over 100 business-tobusiness marketing and networking opportunities for our members to develop new contacts and relationships. We also facilitated advice for small businesses to help them grow. Finally, and most importantly, the Chamber is strong financially. We live in an amazing community. Thank you for making it that way. Thank you for making it better for the next person.

A MESSAGE FROM THE INCOMING CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD Like many of you, I greet each day in North Idaho as a special gift. A gift of working and playing in a place that inspires newcomers and returning visitors in a way that many of us who live here take for granted. But, this gift comes with responsibility. Responsibility to promote and support our business partners in such a way as to encourage an active awareness of all we have to offer in our beautiful city. To make it our mission to keep that responsibility ‘front and center’ is the focus of our Chamber. That said, as Chair of this coming year’s Board, I see the opportunity to lead our Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce as both an honor, and an incredible way to give back. I hope to carry forward the leadership examples that I have learned over my many years of community involvement. Leadership like that which I have had the pleasure of seeing and appreciating in our outstanding Chair for this past year, Mr. Jim Pierce. It is my hope to successfully follow his dynamic efforts with his same energy and enthusiasm, and to continue to build upon the welcoming environment that our city is known for. We are highly recognized for the tremendous resources that our area contributes toward the health and sustainability of our local and regional economies. Again, it is our responsibility to maximize every opportunity in front of us to ensure our current and future prosperity. How better to realize that goal than to emphasize and exercise our strengths, each of you, our members, to encourage and reward the hard work that is evidenced each day by those individuals and businesses who provide important, necessary, and desirable products and services that reflect a “we value you” message. Our role as a Chamber is, and will continue to be, one of collaboration and connectivity. The collaboration that brings us together in a shared vision

4

and connectivity that allows for, and in fact, strongly promotes our reliance on each other for the benefit of all.

Our role as a Chamber is, and will continue to be, one of collaboration and connectivity.

I believe that in the coming year, we will see a continuation of the dedication and determination that speaks of the reputation of our Chamber. To that end, we have worked hard to provide events and programs that are available to all members. Events like our Upbeat Breakfast that provides for the connectivity that I mentioned earlier, and programs like Leadership Coeur d’Alene that each year provides for a rich community-wide learning experience that even our “local” folks are enlightened by. Additionally, we offer all of our members the ability to contribute their time and talent to our many committee efforts that address our local issues such as, public policy, natural resources, business development, and one that is of particular importance to me, education. Our future as a thriving community rests significantly on the learning opportunities that we make possible and available to our local youth. Lastly, if you have the heart for personally welcoming our new members and regularly embracing our existing members, then our Commodore Program is for you. As a strong Chamber, we make an impact in all these areas. I have been fortunate to spend all but a few years of my life here in Coeur d’Alene. I have seen the power of good people and business working together to make our beautiful home ever better. I am honored to continue to lead that charge on your behalf in the coming year.

THE CHAMBER IS YOUR ADVOCATE FOR PUBLIC POLICY The Chamber seeks policy that is business friendly, enhances economic growth, helps create jobs, and strengthens economic vitality. The collective voice of the Chamber does have an impact. The key components of that advocacy are: URBAN RENEWAL

There are very few economic development tools for ED specialists to use here in Idaho. One of these tools is that of Urban Renewal. The State Chambers have taken an active role in helping to preserve this tool, while at the same time supporting clarification and transparency it its application.

TAX REDUCTION AND REGULATORY REVIEW

The CDA Chamber has successfully advocated for a reduction in our income tax structure. We continue to support the efforts of the Idaho Chamber Alliance in their proposal for a gradual 5-year incremental minimal reduction in this tax. Idaho currently has one of the highest corporation income taxes in the West. This plan would provide businesses with a clear message of tax reduction and provide predictability for the future. At the same time, we propose a 5-year regulatory review process that would eliminate unnecessary and unproductive regulations. We have, and will continue to support the authorization of specific economic development uses of Local Option Taxes. We also continue to support the gradual process of minimizing the personal property tax.

TRANSPORTATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE ENHANCEMENT

The Chamber supports increased priorities, taxes and fees that will assure the proper investment in our transportation/infrastructure system. Freight mobility enhancements, air travel access, as well as commuter traffic must be at the forefront of our state and federal systems. Broadband improvements must also be given a high priority.

READING READINESS

The CDA Chamber has a long history of advocating for enhancing our education system. From local support for levies to the support of the strategies outlined in Complete College Idaho, the Chamber has stood for stronger education initiatives. Recent efforts have been in the area of advocacy for efforts to expedite our reading programs. We must create and fund priority programs designed to bring all students to reading grade level by the fourth grade.

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT AND CTE TRAINING

The CDA Chamber strongly supports the enhancement of Career Technical Education (CTE) as the clearest and quickest pathway for training our workforce for the highest in-demand jobs of today, and also many of the anticipated jobs of tomorrow. This message helped produce results last year and is of major importance in this year’s message to the Legislature. Specific ‘skills training’ education must be a priority. In addition to enhancing our current workforce, all institutions of the CDA Higher Education Campus will benefit from this focus.

CDA 2030

As a founding partner of CDA 2030, the Chamber is a strong advocate for the fulfillment of strategies and actions outlined in the Implementation Plan. We have taken a solid leadership role in advancing the vision of this community. We believe that public policy makers must take into consideration the collective views of the thousands of community members who participated and continue to participate in the CDA Vision for a bright future. We are a Proud Partner of CDA 2030.

CHAMBER PROGRAMS & EVENTS MEMBER & COMMUNITY PROMOTION

Chamber members are promoted through our website CdAChamber.com, the Annual Business Directory & Relocation Guide, the Visitors Center, the Chamber’s “This Week” online newsletter, social media, and more. Tourists, locals and convention service personnel utilize the Visitors Center and give our members exclusive access to this important market. The Chamber’s beautiful building and premium physical location provides members a place to display information about their business and services. The Chamber’s Commodores do ribbon cuttings for new member businesses and travel to communities in Idaho, Washington, Montana, and Canada, promoting Coeur d’Alene with the Commodores float, which has placed first in several parades over the years.

LEGISLATIVE AFFAIRS & PUBLIC POLICY EVENTS

One of the Chamber’s key strategic objectives is to represent the Coeur d’Alene area business community in local, regional, state and federal legislative issues; this is done primarily by the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee. This year, at the State level, the Chamber joined 22 other Chambers from around the State advocating successfully to increase funding for statewide and NIC Career and Technical education. This same coalition was also instrumental in the defense of our Urban Renewal legislation, advocating for minor transparence changes without significant changes to the original intent. We continued unsuccessfully to advocate for income tax reductions. For the first time in a decade the Chamber rejoined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and advocated successfully to impede the EPA’s overreach authority within the Waterways of the United States.

SPORTING EVENTS

For a community located on the shores of one of the most spectacular lakes in the Pacific Northwest, festivals and celebrations that capture the essence of living on the lake are an important part of Chamber events. This year over 4,600 IRONMAN athletes converged on the lake city in two events. The new half IRONMAN, or 70.3, in June sold out at 3,000 athletes and the full,or 140.6, moved to August with 1,600 athletes. Additionally, both races were run on a new course, which utilized McEuen Park for portions on the run course freeing up the downtown business district for spectators and shoppers.

UPBEAT BREAKFAST

The Chamber organizes the Upbeat Breakfast as a monthly motivational meeting that feeds the mind, keeps our members positive, and provides them a forum to promote their businesses. Upbeat Breakfast occurs the second Tuesday of every month. On average 150 members attend, making it one of the most popular networking events in our community. Each month at Upbeat Breakfast, different members are presented with the montly Education Committee’s A+ Award and the Business Development Committee’s Business Excellence Award.

WOMEN’S CONFERENCE, WORKSHOPS & SEMINARS

Using feedback from our membership, the Chamber offers several workshops and seminars on a variety of topics that are exclusive to our members during the year. In 2016, we held our 5th Annual Women Creating Success Conference, which was attended by 150 participants. Speakers for the 2016 all-day conference were: Bretta Provost, Home Business Expert; Miranda Hamilton, American Family Insurance; Therese M. Vaillancourt - Goodwin, ICCU Business Relationship Officer; Pam Thompson, Kootenai Health; Jennifer Lehn, Chief Operations Officer at Numerica; Jamie Lynn Morgan, Social Media Guru; JoAnn Zajicek, Director of Union Gospel Mission’s Center for Women and Children; Barbara Pleason Mueller, Executive Director Gizmo-CDA. 10


4th OF JULY FESTIVAL AND PARADE

The Chamber of Commerce is directly involved in hosting numerous events that entertain and benefit our community. One of the most notable is the 4th of July Fireworks, Parade and Festival in City Park, with live music, vendors and family activities. The fireworks show over the lake at dusk has grown to be one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in the Northwest.

104th ANNUAL LUNCHEON

This is the Chamber’s annual celebration of our successes of the past year, as well as a look forward to the challenges to come. The luncheon meeting includes installments of new officers, thanks to our outgoing officers and board members, and recognition of the Citizen of the Year, Committee of the Year, and the Ed Abbott Volunteer of the Year awards.

AFTER HOURS BUSINESS FAIR

The After Hours Business Fair is Coeur d’Alene’s largest business gathering and networking opportunity. The Fair is organized by the Chamber each February and is always sold out with over 125 businesses marketing themselves to over 3,000 attendees.

AW$UM AUCTION

Each year, the Aw$um Auction is produced by the Chamber’s Commodores and is one of the Chamber’s most significant fundraisers. This fun and exciting theme event provides funding and support for other committees activities and programs throughout the year.

BUSINESS AFTER HOURS

Business After Hours, held on the fourth Thursday of every month, is a networking event that provides an opportunity for members to show off their offices or facilities. Food and beverages are provided by the sponsor business. There are drawings for door prizes. This is a great way to meet other Chamber members in a more casual “after work” atmosphere.

EXECUTIVE ROUND TABLE

A select group of presidents, CEOs and managers who meet informally to discuss community and business issues of mutual interest. The program runs September through June, meeting on a monthly basis on the second Wednesday of the month.

LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS

The Chamber’s Leadership Program has graduated over 800 leaders of tomorrow in its 31 graduating classes, which began in 1985. Each year, Leadership Coeur d’Alene donates funds for the Toni Sayler Scholarship, and to various area nonprofits. In 2016, the Leadership CDA Board announced that they have created an Advanded Leadership Program with its first class set to begin January 2017.

MEMBERSHIP APPRECIATION DAY

The Chamber’s Annual Membership Appreciation Day gives member restaurateurs a chance to showcase their offerings to the business community. This free, fun and flavorful event is open to all members and their employees. 11


MEMBERS BY THE NUMBERS Our membership is the driving force for everything we do. Our members involvement and input is what makes us the 2nd largest Chamber in Idaho. We understand the importance of knowing our membership and tailoring what we do to best serve their needs. In 2016, the Chamber conducted regular surveys to poll its membership in a continued effort to stay relevant to today’s savvy business community.
