Chamber Staff
Billie Crapo

Billie Crapo has worked at the Chamber of Commerce since 2006. She started off as the Membership Director, but eventually made her way to CEO. The Events & Sales position has enabled Billie to show off her talents for event planning and “throwing really great parties”! Billie also helps Chamber businesses by finding the best advertising for them, helping them plan their events, and maximizing Chamber benefits. Billie grew up in Kellogg Idaho, and moved to Elko 20 years ago. She considers Elko her home and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. With her vast knowledge of Elko, and employment at the Chamber of Commerce for the past 9 years, she is able to help connect members with other members and find resources within our community at ease. Billie also sits on the Board of Directors for Friends for Life, where she experiences a rewarding opportunity to help people who are going through hard times in their lives. When she’s not working, Billie can be found curled up with a good book or spending time with family and friends. Now that she is the CEO she will be leading the Chamber forward on many new projects.
