Chamber of Commerce

A Chamber of Commerce is an organization of business owners and their local, state, or national government that promotes economic growth and development by advocating for the interests of its members in policymaking.

The Chamber typically works to:

  • Influence legislation;
  • Provide resources to help businesses grow;
  • Promote member businesses through networking opportunities and publicity;
  • Organize events such as conferences and trade shows;
  • Offer educational programs;
  • Advocate on behalf of its members with government agencies and other organizations;
  • Facilitate international trade activities;
  • Promote tourism in the area it serves.

For example, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a national organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., representing businesses and their interests. It ensures that government policies promote business growth, job creation, and economic stability across the country.

Meanwhile, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is a national, non-profit organization that works to strengthen the Canadian economy through advocacy, research, and policy development. It also helps businesses by providing access to networking events, best practices information, and lobbying services.
