Welcome to Palatine

Board President’s Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce. The PACC exists to assist all of our local businesses, and our entire business community, to grow and prosper through a variety of educational programs, events and other initiatives.

Over the last couple of years, the PACC has supported and promoted the Think Local campaign, which encourages residents to support our community by keeping our hard-earned dollars right here in Palatine. A recent Explore Palatine event was held in early September, where residents were reminded to explore all that the Palatine business community has to offer by shopping and dining in town. Another upcoming event is our Chamber Business Expo and Community Showcase on Nov. 10, 2018, at Falcon Park Recreational Center. This event provides an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to promote themselves to hundreds of attendees who can enjoy entertainment, demonstrations, kid-friendly activities and more.

The PACC also hosts Networking at Nite events throughout the year, to help our members (and even prospective and other community members) come together and connect. We invite you to visit our website for more information at PalatineChamber.com or call (847) 359-7200.

Thank you and here’s to another year of growth for the Palatine business community.

Chamber Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce Community Guide & Business Directory. This is your resource to all that is Palatine, from our businesses, to the village and schools, park districts and area events. The Palatine Area Chamber of Commerce’s over 300 members are the heart of the local economy and the backbone of the area’s business community. The Chamber focuses on a broad range of activities, events, partnerships and education to support its businesses and the local community. When you are looking for information or a way to be connected in the Palatine area, look no further, because the Palatine Chamber has something for everyone!

This year the Chamber has developed more ways to connect our businesses to the local community. Our ongoing “Think Local” program and events throughout the year help to educate; vocalizing the importance of patronizing local businesses. By growing our local businesses, we support our community, increase employment, and maintain and grow the character of Palatine. We encourage you to support your local businesses!

The Palatine Area Chamber will also connect businesses and community with our third annual Business Expo and Community Showcase. This exciting event in November will bring families and local businesses together for an entertaining and fun event that will link our members to the community. Networking groups, local events
and Networking @ Nite festivities help our members connect to
each other and create a vibrant, active business community. Our signature Young Entrepreneur’s Academy and partnership with Community Consolidated School District 15, helps to educate and grow the next generation of local business owners while partnering with Chamber businesses.

Keep this Community Guide & Business Directory accessible and use it often. Please visit our website, www.palatinechamber.com, for up-to-date listings of all upcoming events and programs.
