With a mission to “assist in the development and growth of businesses,” the Broussard Chamber of Commerce leads by example. Better yet, that mission is getting noticed. The Broussard Chamber was named the 2017 Small Chamber of the Year by the Louisiana Chamber of Commerce Executives for its commitment and progress in growing the community.
Putting the community and its members first, the Chamber strategically plans events and programs that help businesses gain exposure and grow. With more than 200 members representing manufacturers, educators, medical providers, real estate agents and many other sectors, the chamber is on the pulse of progress.
Members have the opportunity to build contacts and strengthen their brand by attending monthly luncheons with special keynote speakers, participate in ribbon-cutting ceremonies and attend quarterly after-hours events, which are sponsored by various Chamber members.
Likewise, the Chamber works closely with community partners to sustain and recruit businesses to the area. One of the most alluring amenities the city boasts is its proximity. Broussard is situated ideally along Highway 90, which is perfect for companies doing business
in and around the area. Due to the location of this major thorough-fare, residential developments are bringing new subdivisions to
homeowners and a wealth of commercial spaces for companies looking to relocate and/or expand in Broussard.
One of the Chamber’s most vital partners is the Broussard Economic Development Corporation. The organization’s mission is “to serve the community of Broussard and its elected governing entity by identifying opportunities for long-term economic growth, financial sustainability and a meaningful quality of life.”
Moreover, the corporation embodies Broussard’s small town charm while embracing development opportunities that will positively impact the community as a whole.
The Broussard I-49 Connector plays an important role in the city. The connector, once complete, will link numerous small, medium and large businesses together, improve traffic flow and enhance access to and from Broussard.
While safety and convenience are priorities for the development of the connector, the roadway will also be an easy commute to other transportation hubs like the Lafayette Regional Airport, with services to United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and American Airlines, and the Port of Iberia.
Invest in the chamber and city, because Broussard is “Small Town, Big Business.”
