What Does a Chamber of Commerce Do?

The primary goal of a Chamber of Commerce is to look after the interests of their local businesses and to try to help them promote their business, commerce, trade and industry.

Members of a Chamber include merchants, manufacturers, bankers, organizations, non-profits and others who all come together as a group for the benefit of all. Chambers and Members alike gather information and contacts that are useful for the whole group.

The Chamber works alongside the Economic Development Corporation to help businesses in the community grow and thrive.
