Join the Chamber!

The Fortuna Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization of individuals and businesses who join together to enhance economic growth through the promotion and support of our community, civic interests, and member businesses.

Services We Offer

The friendly city of Fortuna is the perfect place to shop, dine, rest and relax while you're visiting the California Redwoods.

Centrally located in Humboldt County, Fortuna is just minutes away from magnificent redwood parks, pristine beaches, and historic points of interest.

Business Networking

The Fortuna Chamber of Commerce has hundreds of member businesses. We offer weekly, monthly, and annual events offering plenty of opportunity to mingle and network with other businesses and members of the community.

Special Events

We have several special events year round including the State of the City breakfast, Apple Harvest Festival, Hops in Humboldt, AutoXpo, Rodeo, and our Annual Awards Dinner.

Marketing

Our Chamber is regularly promoting the businesses of our membership. We provide public awareness of special promotions, events, and discounts and work with the City and the Business Improvement District to facilitate events that drive customers to storefronts.

Advocacy

We advocate on behalf of businesses in Fortuna! We regularly attend City Council meetings and partner with the City of Fortuna to promote small business development and help shape business-friendly policies that benefit our membership.

Social Media

The Chamber provides promotional service for members across a variety of social media platforms. Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and others are leveraged by our members to form new partnerships, promote special events & products, and make connections throughout the community.

Continuous Support

We are the one-stop shop for members and visitors who have questions about who, what, when, and where in Fortuna. We help connect our membership with the resources they need to get business done!

Board of Directors

Renee Lindsay

Renee has spent the past five years working for her family's business, Fernbridge Tractor, as the Accounting & HR Manager. Prior to that, Renee spent 13 years in the Bay Area, working as an HR consultant to numerous clients across many industries. She briefly ran her own successful dog walking and pet sitting business before relocating back to Humboldt County in 2013.

Melissa Collins

Officer, Deposits/Payments Relationship Mgr, US Bank (Eureka)

I am honored to be the 2018 Chair for the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce because I love networking with and connecting businesses! I enjoy working with the business community in Fortuna and want to see them continue to grow and succeed.

Seth McGrath

Owner, Grocery Outlet (Fortuna)

Seth came to the Eel River Valley in early 2016 to open the Fortuna Grocery Outlet with his wife Stefanie. They are independent operators and are proud to own a local business and support the local community with over 38 jobs that are 95% full time.

Seth finds it very important to connect with other local business owners and network and found that the Chamber provides exactly that opportunity.

He serves on the Tourism & Marketing committee. Seth is excited to give back, share, and help support Chamber and our local membership through service on the board.

Cara Knostman

Owner, Lotus Mountain Screen Printing & Embroidery

My husband Greg & I are the owners of Lotus Mountain Screen Printing, a local full service printing company. I feel lucky that my business gives me the opportunity to work closely with many local business owners, non-profits and schools. I love the town of Fortuna and enjoy being a part of the vibrant business community.
