The Corvallis Benton Chamber Coalition is pleased to present you with the 2009 Business Directory & Community Resource Guide. We invite you to explore and enjoy this reference for the best that our local business community has to offer in goods, services and expertise.
If you are new to the area or are considering a move, this guide will provide you with “insider” information to help you take advantage of much that Corvallis and Benton County have to offer. You will find information on local business, demographics, economic performance, education, community contacts and more.
If you are an employer, you will find this a very useful recruitment tool. It will give prospective employees a glimpse into the vitality and unique character of our area. If you are a local businessperson or resident, you will want to keep this directory handy for your own reference or use as a tourist guide for your business and personal visitors.
The Chamber Coalition was formed in July of 2006 through a merger of the Corvallis Area Chamber of Commerce (formed in 1912) and the Corvallis-Benton Economic Development Partnership (formed in 1989). It represents the spirit and energy behind the many fine businesses, entrepreneurial endeavors and organizations in Corvallis and Benton County. Our mission is to “Serve, grow, retain, and recruit business”, energizing the local economy and making our area an economically vital and vibrant place to live, work and play.
I join my fellow Coalition members and staff in extending you a warm welcome to our part of the world, Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley. If you are visiting, we hope you enjoy your stay and want you to know that we are happy to help you in any way we can. If you are just joining our community, we are eager to meet you and help you get settled.
Until we meet,
David M. (Dave) Gazeley
Corvallis Benton Chamber Coalition Board of Directors
