About Us

Dedicated to Supporting our Business Community in the Rathdrum Area.

A forum for Business to Business Networking.

The Rathdrum Area Chamber of Commerce is the area's ultimate business resource. As a member-driven organization, we meet at noon on the third Thursday of every month at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran church located at 13541 W. Highway 41, Rathdrum.

Please join us and discuss opportunities for involvement in Chamber committees, activities and networking with other members. You can be a driving part of our community!
