About the Chamber
According to the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), a chamber of commerce is an organization of businesses seeking to further their collective interests, while advancing their community, region, state or nation. Business owners in towns, cities and other territories voluntarily form these local societies/networks to advocate on behalf of the community at large, economic prosperity and business interests. Chambers have existed in the US for more than two centuries, with many having been established before the jurisdictions they represent. A business-led civic and economic advancement entity operating in a specific space may call itself any number of things – board of trade, business council, etc. – but by most standards, they are all chambers of commerce.
The St. Bernard Chamber is a professional business organization committed to the representation and support of our local business community.
