Auburn Chamber ~ Business Advocacy
By establishing and maintaining dialogue among business owners and community leaders, Chambers have a tremendous impact on the growth and connectivity of a region. For more than 100 years, the Auburn Chamber of Commerce has served the foothill region, representing the interests of business and community. The Auburn Chamber serves small and mid size businesses, corporations, and community non-profit organizations. The Chamber is a collaboration of business people coming together to create one voice and diverse opportunitites to grow local business and the economy of the greater foothill community.
A Collective Voice
One of the primary objectives of the Chamber is to encourage laws and regulations desirable for the benefit of business in general and to serve as the “voice of business.” With the commitment of government leaders in the community, the Chamber is better positioned to provide creative business leadership and effective coordination of all interested individuals and organizations in solving community issues and initiating and following through on constructive community action.
Government Affairs / Economic Development Team
The Auburn Chamber Government Affairs / Economic Development Team meets monthly to review and discuss issues facing business on a local, county, state and federal level. Additionally, the team is committed to improve the economic base of the Auburn community by promoting diverse business and employment opportunities. Members work with city and county elected and economic development officials for the enhancement of the local economy.
The Chamber represents nearly 500 businesses and non-profits, and their 12,000 employees. To effectively serve its advocacy role on issues of interest to the business community, the Chamber developed several years ago a Declaration of Principles which provides a philosophical framework for defining the Chamber’s position on public issues.
Members of the Auburn Chamber are encouraged to actively participate with this important chamber tream. The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30a.m. in the Conference Room of the Chamber offices located at 601 Lincoln Way.
