ALIB provides an extensive array of services to its membership, including a domestic water system and sewer system on Sahhaltkum I.R. 4. Adams Lake Band is home to a well-known language immersion school, Chief Atahm School (www.chiefatahm.com). The majority of the administrative offices are located on I.R. 4, adjacent to the Village of Chase and overlooking Little Shuswap Lake.

Adams Lake Development Corporation (ALDCO), owned by the Band, is undergoing a restructuring process which has already produced measurable benefits. The two largest ALDCO operations are: a 10,000 sq ft covered mill; and a large lakefront development, West Harbour Village.
