Local business people mix and mingle at the opening of the new location for the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce Wednesday.
Chamber moves to new space

After a decade and a half, the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation are now under one roof at 190 Central Park Square.

The Chamber shared space with the Los Alamos Visitor’s Center, located at 109 Central Park Square, but Los Alamos County Council voted last month to move the Los Alamos Visitor’s Center to 20th Street for more visibility.

With the Visitors Center gone, the Chamber decided to move in with the Commerce and Development Corporation for both practical considerations and to cut costs.

“It was a good opportunity to get all of us together,” Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce Director Rynn Herrmann said.
Los Alamos Commerce and Development Executive Director Patrick Sullivan said it was a move that was a long time in coming.

“This is something the organization’s been looking at off and on for 15 years now,” Sullivan said of the consolidation. “The end of the lease at the old space coincided with the county’s desire to move the Visitors Center to the new location, so it felt like a good time to do it.”

According to Herrmann, the move hasn’t slowed their organization down, as they currently getting ready for the Downtown Creative Crawl Feb. 1 and Museum Monday on Feb. 4.
