The US Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business organization, representing small and large businesses on a national level.
ACCE serves more than 9,000 members in the chamber of commerce, convention and visitor bureaus, and economic development agencies throughout the US.
Every state has a state chamber of commerce that advocates for its member businesses at a state level. We encourage you to click on the link below to visit our list of chamber of commerce.
State Chamber of Commerce groups form to collectively bring chamber executives from around the state to develop a program of work for its membership. This might include an educational component, a reference library, a mini-conference, or a certification program.
Many states have regional chamber of commerce association. Example: In my home state of Minnesota there are 5 or 6 regional associations. These smaller associations allow its executives to meet on a regular basis and develop plans for sharing their regions business/community voice to its state/national level.
