A Chamber of Commerce is a coalition of area businesses, industries, organisations, and professionals who pool their talents and resources to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of their community.

Businesses and organisations are eligible to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. Membership fees are structured so even the smallest business can be a member.
