About a Chamber of Commerce

What is the Chamber of Commerce?

A Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit, membership-based organization dedicated to protect and improve the business climate and quality of life within a specific region. Although Chambers often work with large public agencies, they are not departments of any government organization. At the Pelham Chamber of Commerce, our mission is to promote economic development and be the catalyst for member prosperity. The Pelham Chamber of Commerce partners with businesses, organizations and coalitions to work toward common goals of supporting the community and fellow businesses.

Does the Pelham Chamber of Commerce endorse candidates?

No. The Pelham Chamber of Commerce is a nonpartisan organization and does not endorse political candidates or participate in campaign activities.
