“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.”

– Henry Ford

A chamber of commerce is a non-profit organization that is made up of businesses, industrial and professional firms, as well as individuals. The primary objective is improving the economic and socioeconomic well-being of the community. Members contribute their time and financial resources towards programs that fulfill their needs, while also promoting the systematic growth and development of the community. It acts as a catalytic agency that unites public and private entities towards achieving shared goals.
