Fargo-Moorhead and West Fargo chambers officially merge
The Fargo Moorhead Chamber of Commerce and West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce have officially merged into the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce.
The paperwork was signed Friday morning, said Adrienne Olson, Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce communications manager.
It was originally slated for Sept. 1, but because the West Fargo chamber has most of its big events in September, the organizations decided waiting would make for a smoother transition.
The first regularly scheduled board meeting with all 16 board members is Oct. 28. A board retreat with all 16 members will be Thursday and Friday.
The first major event celebrating the new chamber will be the Oct. 14 Business After Hours.
There are a couple of training events Tuesday and Wednesday to which all members are invited.
After months of discussion and community input, members of both chambers voted in July to join forces.
