Arvada, CO Womenof.com is proud to announce that it has joined the Arvada Chamber of Commerce.
About the Arvada Chamber of Commerce
In 1925, Arvada was a small farming community with a population of approximately 1,000 people. At that time, business leaders decided to move from a Community Club structure to a full-fledge Chamber of Commerce. With a new charter in hand, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce began working to strengthen Arvada¹s economy.
From the first Harvest Festival in 1925 to the first traffic light in 1941, the Chamber helped the community achieve its economic potential. Through the Great Depression and World War II, members of the Chamber developed the foundation that would help Arvada prepare for the economic growth that lay ahead. Having served the community for 84 years, the Arvada Chamber of Commerce continues to play an integral role in the business community.
