The Salt Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is distributing its 1989 membership directory and buyer's guide, according to Fred S. Ball, president.

Distributed to all chamber members, the directory lists all chamber member companies alphabetically and includes a contact person, address and telephone number. It also lists the companies according to the type of business."We strongly encourage members to support the businesses listed in the directory. One of the main purposes of the publication is to promote the business of our chamber members," said Ball.

A color section in the front of the directory entitled "Life in the Valley" contains an economic overview of Salt Lake Valley along with tax and cost-of-living statistics, health care, education and recreation information.

Each chamber member receives a complimentary copy of the directory. Additional copies may be purchased by chamber members for $12.50, but for non-members the cost is $35.
