ABOUT SCHOOLCRAFT TOURISM & COMMERCE
Schoolcraft Tourism & Commerce is a hybrid organization, created by combining the functions of the Economic Development Corporation, Chamber of Commerce, and Merchants Association. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to improve the business community and enhance the quality of life for every resident and traveler in Schoolcraft County.
Schoolcraft Tourism & Commerce is the place where people come together to do business, learn, and to make our community a better place. From monthly networking events, to annual awards and professional development opportunities, we strive to build relationships throughout the county and throughout our memberships.
On top of taking care of our business community, we market the Schoolcraft County area to visitors all over the United States and around the world! Tourism is a vital part of our economy that generates millions of dollars back into our county each year. We promote and encourage travelers to come discover more because we have tons to offer from more lakes, more trails and more Michigan.
The mission and purpose of Schoolcraft Tourism & Commerce is sustaining and enhancing the quality of life for every resident and organization of Schoolcraft County through economic, community and workforce development. We do this by working in each of eight strategic areas (identified in the 2009 economic development study of the Upper Peninsula) – Business Retention & Expansion, New Business Development, Tourism, Healthcare, Education & Workforce Development, Higher Education, Natural Resources and Community Development. We collaborate locally, regionally, nationally and internationally to achieve this mission.
