Summer Conference 2024 will be held August 22-23, 2024 in Logan

Join us for our annual Utah Association of Chambers Summer Conference! This two-day conference will dig in deep with discussion that really matter to chamber executives and board members. During each session, leaders will provide takeaways that you can begin using immediately at your own chamber.

The opportunity to network and build relationships with other chamber leadership is unmatched. These connections have resulted in more chamber-to-chamber collaboration, resources for boards and staff, friendships and a united business voice.
