F-M, West Fargo chambers to combine on Sept. 1MOORHEAD - On Sept. 1, the chambers of commerce for Fargo-Moorhead and West Fargo will officially combine into a unified chamber of commerce to serve metro-area businesses.
After discussing the idea for months and seeking input from area businesses, officials from the Fargo-Moorhead Chamber of Commerce and the West Fargo Area Chamber of Commerce announced the merger during a press conference this afternoon in Moorhead.
Both chambers' members were recently invited to cast votes on whether the merger should happen.
About 72 percent of ballots cast in West Fargo and 98 percent of ballots cast in Fargo-Moorhead were in favor of the merger, said Craig Whitney, president and CEO of the Fargo-Moorhead chamber.
