What is the Unified in Progress Campaign?
The Laramie Chamber Business Alliance acquires on a yearly basis financial backing from Partners in the business community and the public sector. The Laramie Chamber Business Alliance Board of Directors decided to embark on a five-year funding campaign after a Feasibility Study completed in the summer of 2014 showed that investors preferred to be asked once and invoiced every year for the next five years.
The UNIFIED IN PROGRESS CAMPAIGN is to raise Partner funding for January 2016 through December 2021. The goal of the campaign is $3,500,000 to insure that the goals, objectives, and strategies of the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance initiatives are met within that time period.
In the summer and fall of 2014, the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, with business and community leaders, developed a five-year (2016-2021) economic and community development strategic plan. Seven (7) initiatives were identified with specific goals, objectives, strategies, and times to achieve the objectives.
