Chamber votes to explore Elevate Rapid City merger

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Chamber of Commerce is a step closer toward becoming a part of Elevate Rapid City.

The Chamber Board voted unanimously on Thursday to explore and negotiate a merger or partnership with Elevate. A final decision will be made at the chamber’s meeting next month.

The plan calls for the Chamber to become a division of Elevate and maintain a 25 percent presence on the Elevate Rapid City Board of Directors. All Chamber staff would be offered jobs with Elevate.

A merger is seen as a way to bring economic development in the area under one umbrella.
