Here’s a Chamber History Fact: In 1902, no general business organization existed in Salt Lake City. With the railroad contemplating building a short cut across the Great Salt Lake to Ogden, the business leaders of Salt Lake City quickly organized. Their goal was to convince the railroad to make the short cut to Salt Lake City instead of Ogden. Unfortunately, it was too late to change the railroad’s mind. But the organization those business leaders created, the Commercial Club, still exists. Today it’s known as the Salt Lake Chamber.
This Saturday, September 14th, the Salt Lake Chamber is remembering 100 years of business. We’re coming together for a Century Celebration Gala at the Grand America. Questar and Stoel Rives sponsor the event. At the Gala we will honor over 100 of the people who gave extraordinary volunteer service to the community. Call the Chamber now to reserve your space at 328-5050 or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
