The Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce is changing its name, after 120 years.
In a news release dated tomorrow, the Chamber and Economic Development Corporation announced it will now be known as the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance.
"One of the primary focuses of this new organization is its commitment to serving our existing companies in the region, both those engaged in interstate commerce and those that survive on the local economy," said Joe Raso, president and CEO.
"Our name and logo establishes a single identity for two organizations that merged in February 2012," said Raso. "This is a big step as we set our new course and continue to work as the primary advocate for the business community in the Colorado Springs/Pikes Peak region dedicated to serving businesses of all sizes and to building regional economic growth and prosperity."
The news release says the Board of Directors has been working on a 20 year strategic plan.
The Chamber has more than 1,500 members.
