What does a Chamber of Commerce do?

A chamber of commerce serves as a united voice for local member businesses. Its primary purpose is to build local community support for member businesses.

Often, community improvement is an important goal. A community which is considered an attractive place to live, work, visit, or do business can create a more stable economic base than a struggling community.

Membership in a chamber of commerce is voluntary, and being a member doesn't guarantee any particular quality of service to consumers.

Commonly asked questions about the Chamber of Commerce

Does the chamber of commerce hear complaints about local businesses?

The chamber doesn't mediate complaints about local businesses. Such complaints are typically managed through organizations like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or an appropriate state or city government department. The nature of the complaint dictates which option is best.

Who can be a member of the Chamber of Commerce?

The primary requirement for becoming a member of the chamber of commerce is to own and operate a business within the associated community, including a physical location or specific demographics. There are also annual dues to be paid. The more members a chamber has, the easier it is to fund operations, and the more significant their collective voice may be.

Can a business be a member of more than one Chamber of Commerce?

Yes, a business can join as many chambers of commerce as it chooses as long as it meets their requirements for membership. For example, a company may enter both city or county chambers of commerce, as well as a larger state-oriented chamber. Additionally, some businesses may participate in an overall community chamber and a minority chamber as well.
