About the Chamber


Who We Are

"The Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce is organized to promote the interests of local and regional individuals, businesses, and organizations. Our commitment is to provide quality services and representation in the areas of government, health, agriculture, education, recreation and culture to enhance our presence in the state of South Dakota."


The Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce is the heartbeat of the community. With members from both Pierre and Fort Pierre, we provide tools, opportunities and ideas for our members to succeed. From our Shop Pierre First campaign to business referrals to serving as a civic information clearinghouse, our staff is dedicated to strengthening our local economy.

Marketing Arm of the City

The Pierre Convention and Visitors Bureau is part of the Chamber. Funded through the cities of Pierre and Fort Pierre, the CVB prepares and executes an annual marketing plan to attract meetings, special events, hunters, anglers and leisure travelers.

Visitors Center and Community Room

Hundreds of visitors visit the Pierre Area Chamber of Commerce each year to find out what to do while they are in the area. Stocked with member information and a helpful chamber staff, our goal is to encourage travelers to get the most out of their time here. Adjacent to the Visitors Center, the Pierre Community Room is an outstanding venue for meetings and seminars. The room is managed by chamber staff and available for rent to member and non-members alike.
