The Moore Chamber of Commerce is an organization of businesses seeking to further the collective interests of the membership while advancing the community we serve. The Chamber is headed by a 17-member board of directors, as well as five ex-officio representatives from schools and the city, and are diverse to truly represent the interests of the general membership. Their role is to set policy, direct the affairs of the Chamber as well as manage the finances. The Chamber has six opportunities with committees and task forces working toward goals and issues facing the membership. Members are encouraged to participate to assist and expand their benefits by being a part of one of these groups and helping the Chamber further its mission. The Chamber has a professional staff with combined experience of over 35 years that can assist members with many of their business needs.
The Moore Chamber of Commerce mission is to promote and facilitate the growth of the business community for our members and stakeholders.
Chamber Team Ribbon Cuttings
Hosting more than 75 ribbon cutting or grand opening celebrations a year, the Chamber prides itself on getting the additional visibility for its members with these celebrations. The Chamber also has an option for home- or field-based businesses, called the Ribbon Palooza. These events, throughout the year, provide a platform for those business formats to showcase their businesses in the same manner as if they were hosting it at an office or storefront. Show your support for your fellow members by joining the Chamber and the proud business owners and representatives as they memorialize their achievements.
Building your business by making connections is a direct line to success. People do business with those they know and at the Chamber, we provide you ample opportunities to connect with fellow businesses and potential customers as well as build your referral base. Business Before, Business After and Morning Buzz are hosted at fellow members’ businesses and allow you a casual, non-pressure way to build relationships. Networking Lunches are a more structured format for you to address the group as a whole.
