With a cooperative membership of 500+ businesses and a staff that is committed to creating, building and maintaining a most respected and visionary Chamber organization, the return on membership investment continuously transitions from valuable to essential every day.
There are two primary functions of the Chamber of Commerce: (1) it is the leading voice for the business community, translating group thinking by its members into action, and (2) it provides leadership in solving community problems and enhancing the quality of life throughout Wayne County.
A Chamber of Commerce is an advocate for its members, not a charity nor a government entity.
