In 2016, the Montana Chamber of Commerce Board created and launched a ten-year strategic plan that represented the priorities of the Montana business community. This plan identified four objectives to achieve those goals and focus the Montana Chamber’s work: Business Climate. Infrastructure. Workforce Readiness. Entrepreneurship.
While the four pillars of Envision 2026 laid the foundation of our strategic plan to champion a business-friendly economy in our state, our efforts in helping to craft and vigorously pursue legislative initiatives that support those pillars play a crucial role in that plan. Since 2016, the Montana Chamber and its members have partnered with lawmakers to successfully usher laws through our state legislature that continue to bring us closer to realizing the goals of Envision 2026.
The Envision 2026 Halftime Report provides an in-depth review of the accomplishments and legislative wins we’ve gained since 2016 and details The Path Forward as we close out the last five years of our 10-year strategic plan.
In addition to our legislative efforts, we have partnered with the Montana Chamber Foundation to fund important initiatives associated with Envision 2026, such as The Prospects and Youth Entrepreneurs. These and other programs support our Envision 2026 goals of creating opportunities—and removing obstacles—for your business to grow and prosper by improving Montana’s talent pipeline, business climate, entrepreneurship prospects, and quality of life through workforce readiness, regulatory and legal reform, and infrastructure investment.
