“The Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to foster the advancement of commercial, industrial and civic interests that contribute to the growth and development of our members, the business environment and a stronger community in the Palatine area.”
The Chamber offers many opportunities to create business connections and referrals while developing meaningful business relationships. Our Networking @ Nite and Networking Before Hours social events are held at least once a month. Our networking groups meet weekly and monthly and offer our members a regular opportunity to build relationships and gain business leads. In addition, we also have regular multi-chamber events, lunches, seminars and forums with neighboring chambers. All of these opportunities are structured to get you connected with other members and their businesses.
The Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce develops relationships with key government officials on the national, state and local levels in order to keep our members informed on key issues facing businesses. We also provide opportunities for our members to take action and get involved with issues affecting business. Annually, the Chamber hosts a State of the Village report and provides members-only legislative forum events with our local, state and federal government officials.

The Chamber sponsors a number of community events throughout the year. Our State of the Village provides an update on what is going on in Palatine and what’s to come. The Palatine Community Forum offers members and Palatine residents the opportunity to talk to and hear about the latest updates from the village, Palatine Public Library, area school districts and colleges, Salt Creek Park District and Palatine Park District. Our Legislative Breakfast provides the opportunity to
meet and talk with our local, county and state legislators. The golf outing brings together area business professionals for a fun day of networking on the links, held in early summer.
