What is a Chamber of Commerce?

A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS a voluntary organization that unites the business and professional people in an effort to expand the economy of the area.

A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IS business people concerned about improving the area they do business in, and are willing to do something about it actively.

Its strengths lie in the number and diversity of its membership. Both large and small businesses from virtually every profession are represented and influence investments in the Chamber. THE MEMBERS ARE THE CHAMBER!
