The mission of the MCA is to apply the collaborative impact of the chambers of commerce across the central Rockies, including the thousands of businesses and employees they represent, to ensure the mountain communities have a voice on regional and state issues of importance.
The MCA has identified key priority items that are common themes impacting the mountain region. These include workforce housing, transportation, early childcare, tourism funding and destination management, short term rentals, workforce development, broadband, and healthcare.
“We are excited to collaborate with our fellow chambers of commerce in the mountain region, as we all work to solve similar challenges. By working together, we can share ideas and resources, and ultimately amplify the voice of our businesses and communities,” shared Angie Anderson, MCA Chair and Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association President & CEO.
