A Chamber of Commerce is a membership based non-profit (501(c)6) organization. It unites business and professional leaders, thus creating a central agency which lends itself to improving business and building a better community. It was founded to protect commerce transit, in the marketplace, and to promote the sale of goods. Today, the Chamber of Commerce has become an organization for the total community.

A Chamber of Commerce enables businesses and organizations to accomplish collectively what no one of them could do individually. Its strength lies in attracting the greatest number of individuals and businesses into membership, thereby creating a pool of resources from which can be drawn ideas, energy, and finances.

A Chamber of Commerce gives expression to the business person's natural instincts to improve the market and the community of which that person is a part.

The Chamber is NOT a department of the city, county, or state government, a political body; a civic club or professional society; a social service, welfare or charitable institution, a private advertising, publicity or public relations agency. Although the Chamber may choose to help its members in some of these area, it is not its main purpose.
