WHAT IS A CHAMBER?
Chambers of commerce are business and community associations, generally incorporated as a 501(c)(6) business. Chambers of commerce are not part of local, state, or federal government, though chambers do often partner with government to accomplish the chamber mission.
Chambers of commerce are funded by membership dues as well as non-dues items such as events, sponsorships, contracts, and sales of various products and services. The vast majority of chamber membership rolls are small businesses – businesses with fewer than 20 to 35 employees, on average.
Today’s chamber of commerce, rather than being narrowly focused on one particular industry, issue, cause, or activity, focus on a broad range of activities and support for both businesses and communities.
WHAT DO CHAMBERS DO?
Chambers of commerce provide opportunities for members to make an impact on critical business and community issues. Together with other talented leaders in business, community, and government, chamber members and professional staff work to make the community a better place to work, live, and play by:
Provide networking opportunities
Act as the voice of small business
Strengthen the local economy
Promote the community
Work to insure a friendly business climate
But chambers not only address economic issues, they provide leadership in civic and social programming as well. Chambers address community issues such as health care concerns, education, transportation, workforce quality and availability, housing, and crime with innovative programs, research, coalition-building, and more.
A strong dynamic business community benefits the entire community. Chambers directly involve themselves in the community to create the environment where people want to live and work.
