In 2010 local business owners united to form a business alliance in Syracuse City in order to promote the support and growth of the Syracuse area small businesses. Mike Gailey, formerly of Syracuse Family Dental and current Mayor, Craig Henderson of R.C. Willey, Ryan Rentmeister of Rentmeister Home Services, Mike McBride of Glen Eagle Golf Club and Troy Moyes, formerly of Syracuse City working in economic development, founded S-B.O.S.S. (Syracuse Business Organization for Strategic Synergy).
The goal of the organization was to promote local business, open communication between city and citizens and have a good interface with the city on behalf of businesses. In 2014 the name was changed to Syracuse Chamber of Commerce in order to more clearly communicate the intention of the group.
Today, the Syracuse Chamber has shifted its focus to not only benefit the Syracuse City businesses but to help those businesses in the North West part of the county (namely Syracuse, West Point, Clearfield, Clinton and Sunset) to have a voice in the community. Additional objectives are to help promote and grow local business and help entice people to stay out west when shopping. Additionally, an aim is to give a voice to businesses with local governments.
This new organization will no longer be called the Syracuse Chamber. It will be called the West Davis Chamber of Commerce. Businesses from the five western Davis County cities will be invited to attend and government representation from each city will be invited to be part of the new chamber. This will give the chamber the ability to have a greater membership and to promote the growing economic needs of the area.
Syracuse City will stay involved in the chamber and will continue to represent Syracuse City business interests as well as the West Davis area businesses. We encourage you to join and be part of the chamber to help grow our economic base and develop a positive business environment.
