What is a Chamber of Commerce?
A Chamber of Commerce is a coalition of area businesses, industries, organizations and professionals who pool their talents and resources to improve the economic, civic, and cultural climate of their communities.
Businesses and organizations are eligible to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. Dues are structured so even the smallest business can be a member.
The Chamber is an advocate and service organization for business. It provides a venue through which business professionals can take effective action for the progress and growth of their communities.
