Did You Know?

The first chamber of commerce was founded in France in 1599. The first in the United States started in New York in 1768. The United States Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1912 and promotes pro-business issues via lobbying efforts at the national level.

Indiana Chamber:
The Indiana Chamber, officially formed in 1922 with activities dating back to 1897, is the largest, broad-based business advocacy group in the state, representing businesses of all types and sizes throughout Indiana.

The mission is to “cultivate a world-class environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity for the people of Indiana and their enterprises.” The Chamber’s legislative action team is the voice for pro-jobs, pro-economy public policies at the Statehouse and in Congress.

Approximately 200 local/regional chambers of commerce throughout the state promote networking and local business activity.

Connect with businesses like yours

The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors in all 92 counties on behalf of more than four million Hoosiers. The membership of the Chamber reflects the industry makeup of the state, with approximately 33% in professional services and 22% in manufacturing. More than 70% of member companies have fewer than 100 employees.

Public policy committees are comprised of volunteer members of Chamber companies. These leaders in their fields come together to guide Chamber advocacy efforts, as well as benefit from each other’s experiences. More than 50 employee training programs (many focused on human resources and safety) each year offer learning opportunities from expert presenters and fellow Chamber members.
