Happy Mother’s Day, Coeur d’Alene! On behalf of the Coeur d’Alene Regional Chamber, we’d like to wish all the mothers out there the wonderful day they deserve!

This Mother's Day, we'd want to honour a special mother in our community, someone you could name "A Mother To Coeur d'Alene" – Joan Ford!

Joan is the Visitors Center Coordinator, and she is the first person many visitors see when they arrive in our lovely city.

“I love meeting all the tourists! Many of them are discovering Coeur d’Alene for the first time, and they’re just pleasant people!”  

Joan began her involvement with the chamber as a volunteer more than a decade ago.

She was hired to work at the front desk after years of assistance in her spare time.

where she now manages all volunteers, assists with various CDA Chamber projects, books facility rentals and coordinates monthly reporting for local tourism data. 

Her role is more than fitting since Joan began as a tourist herself.
