Yuri Huntington

As the Executive Director of the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce, my primary goal is to support local businesses and promote their growth and success. With a background in Human Service Counseling and Life Coaching, I acquired the skills to motivate and inspire individuals and groups to achieve their goals. Building strong relationships within the community and promoting economic development is essential to foster growth and collaboration among local businesses.

As a small business owner myself, I understand the challenges and opportunities that come with running a business. That's why I'm passionate about providing our members with the resources and support they need to thrive. Whether it's through educational workshops, promotional campaigns, or advocacy efforts, we're committed to helping our members achieve their goals and succeed in today's competitive marketplace.

As the Executive Assistant of the Chamber of Commerce, I bring with me a deep understanding of the need to support small businesses. Coming from a small town myself, I recognize the significant role that local businesses play in the community. I believe that community events are essential in creating a vibrant local economy and that is why I am committed to organizing events that bring people together and showcase the unique offerings of our members. By fostering a sense of community, I hope to encourage more people to shop small and support local businesses.

Mission Statement

The Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce is an organization of businesses and individuals that work to promote the area by developing a strong and vibrant economy through business advocacy and leadership, thus creating a better quality of life.

What is the Chamber of Commerce?

Your Chamber of Commerce is an organization of citizens who are investing their time and money in a community development program – working together to improve the economic, civic, and cultural fortitude of the region, community or area.

Any citizen who is interested in helping to develop the community is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The direct benefit is a stronger local economy; more businesses and more jobs with higher salaries and better fringe benefits. The indirect benefits are more public programs, better schools and less crime.

The work of the Chamber is financed by the investments of its members. The dues structure is designed to permit even the smallest business, or individual, to be a member.

The Chamber of Commerce is guided by a Board of Directors, chamber members who are business leaders in the area served.

Why should I be a member of my Chamber of Commerce?

  • Because the Chamber of Commerce carries the reputation of being a leader of business integrity in my community, and my affiliation lends my business credibility.
  • Because my Chamber of Commerce has a voice in the legislation that is passed at our state capitol. That legislation directly affects how I am able to conduct business in Texas. I want to have my influence over the legislation that my Chamber endorses.
  • Because the Chamber of Commerce requires financial support in order to perform its job of increasing the economic prosperity in my area, which it serves.
  • Because the Chamber of Commerce unifies the public spirit of my community and directs it into useful and constructive channels that are not limited to business.
