Representing businesses and trade groups across industries and the state

We are the third oldest state organization and are financed solely through voluntary dues from members who live and do business in Montana. We have members throughout the state and a Board of Directors that represents Montana’s basic economic groups.

Our members represent businesses and trade associations both large and small from a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, agriculture, transportation, energy, utilities, telecommunications, healthcare and natural resources.
