The Whittier Chamber is here to help you build a better business! Annual membership includes:

  • countless opportunities to network and promote your organization through exclusive events and marketing programs
  • greater reach and exposure via the Chamber’s website, in the Business Focus (the Chamber’s bi-monthly newspaper), the Chamber's business directory, and social media
  • important news and legislative updates to help members make better business decisions and stay informed, and

The Chamber has been furthering and supporting economic development for over 100 years. The Chamber currently represents over 580 member-businesses from nearly every industry and is proud of the many partnerships it has formed with local agencies. The Chamber of Commerce is the largest pro-business organization in Whittier. Members are encouraged to explore and tailor their benefits package to better suit their time and needs with the Chamber staff. Local professionals are invited to attend a networking event (like Tasty Tuesday or Thirsty Thursday) or Member Reception (Whittier Chamber 101) to learn more about how the Whittier Chamber is connecting its members to new ideas, business resources, and most importantly, the community.
