From the President


Dear Illinois Valley Business :

It is time to join or renew your membership in the Illinois Valley Chamber of Commerce for 2018. Annual membership levels for businesses are $100 for Bronze, $250 for Silver and $500 for Gold membership.

The Chamber of Commerce is proud to be the voice of the business community in the Illinois Valley. We are looking forward to an exciting year. Our Chamber office is located in the Illinois Valley Visitor Center at 201 Caves Highway in Cave Junction, where we have partnered with the National Park Service, the City of Cave Junction, the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management to provide local business information to travelers and visitors.

Current projects include conducting an Illinois Valley Business Survey, facilitating the Illinois Valley Public Safety Task Force, supporting Cave Junction Patrol and upgrading our two “Experience the Illinois Valley” billboards. In addition to sponsoring Concerts in the Park during the summer, we initiate the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting, conduct the Citizen and business of the year awards, and have an annual joint mixer with the Josephine County and Del Norte and other regional Chambers at the Chateau at the Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve.

The Illinois Valley Chamber of Commerce is also supporting a request to the County Commissioners to direct funds, from the sale of the County Building in Cave Junction, to support four Illinois Valley infrastructure projects.

  1. Downtown Cave Junction, Lighting, Security, and Beautification.
  2. Historic Redwood Highway Signage – Will continue Illinois Valley Branding for Tourism.
  3. Broadband Development- Fundamental need for business success today and into the future.
  4. IV Airport Fire Suppression System – This has been a long-standing barrier to IV Airport functionality and business expansion in the Illinois Valley.

We welcome our emerging recreation, art, food, wine, beer and cannabis industries and are grateful
for their civic contributions.

Please join us. We encourage your participation and have positions available on the current Chamber Board of Directors. Please let us know of your interest, ideas and input for future projects.


Menno Kraai

IV Chamber President
