The purpose of the Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce is to help member businesses prosper. Thus one of our goals is to promote tourism, relocation, and expansion of service opportunities. Our county has ten times more visitors each year than residents. Additionally, we have many seasonal residents who often become full-time residents upon retirement. Every member business and organization provides a service. The goal of the Chamber is to provide tools and training to promote and assist members in making the connections crucial to helping their businesses flourish.

VISITOR AND RELOCATION GUIDE
Visitors sometimes just want something in their hands to save and keep for reference. Our Visitor and Relocation Guide serves this purpose.

Each year, the winning photo from our annual photo contest is featured on the cover and other submitted photos are utilized throughout the guide.
