About the Chamber

The Greater Palmer Chamber of Commerce offers businesses a wide range of opportunities to promote business. Programs offered throughout the year will give you a chance to network your business, make new contacts and make a difference in the community.
Even if your business is located outside the greater Palmer area, Chamber membership can keep you informed about community issues which are especially helpful if you conduct business in this area.  
Chamber is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)6 organization. It unites businesses, industries, professionals, organizations, groups and educational institutions who are committed to build a better community. A majority of our membership is composed of small businesses interested in creating and fostering a healthy environment in which to conduct business.
Most importantly, the Chamber is people. People such as you - people who realize that through the Chamber, we can accomplish collectively what no one individual can do alone. The strength of the Chamber lies in attracting a great number of members, thus creating a pool of resources from which to draw ideas, energy and financial support.

To provide leadership that fosters growth and prosperity by ensuring the Greater Palmer area is the best place to operate and grow a business, as well as the most desirable place to live, work, play and visit.
