Established in 1913, the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce has been and always will be, committed to creating a community that is a great place to live, work and do business. Our vision is to build a vibrant, growing and sustainable business economy that provides prosperity and quality life throughout our region.
We believe in preserving, promoting and protecting a business-friendly environment, free of obstacles to growth and progress.
Do you share this same belief? Of course, we can tout our programs and services, cost-saving initiatives, networking events and public policy but what matters the most is the success of your business and putting the Chamber to work for you.
We understand the importance of keeping your business connected to the community. As a member, you and your business will have access to networking with over 850 businesses throughout the Wabash Valley. Each year we host over 30 events connecting you to community and business leaders, each of which provides you with the chance to meet a potential customer.

I think that the Chamber as an organization provides a great way to meet other business owners and other business people and just get contacts within. And, you also build that network of trust with other business leaders and other employees of other businesses and it provides a great resource if you are looking for something to know I met this person at a Chamber event or I have seen this person in Chamber newsletters so it is a great way to provide that contact with other people. It also lets you know what's going on, a lot of times if you don't get a newsletter with those kinds of things you don't know what's going on in the community.

The biggest thing that being a part of the Chamber means is that the Boys and Girls Club has the member network to reach different ages of kids and even adults that want to volunteer here at the Boys and Girls Club. ``I think it's huge. A lot of people don't know a lot about the Boys and Girls Club, they don't know much about nonprofit agencies, so being in this particular group will get different people speaking to different people - in which all that networking, in turn, is just positive for our organization.

My beliefs are that with Chamber membership it gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and from a business standpoint people like to do business with people they know and the Chamber gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of people.

The Chamber provides an opportunity for members of Ivy Tech to connect with business and industry in Vigo County. As we align our programs with the workforce needs in our community, it is important for us to hear the challenges, needs and future goals of the collective community. The chamber provides a group of multiple voices at the same time for us. It also allows us to be part of the collective vision of the community.

In addition to professional development opportunities, the Chamber provides my organization a continuous source of networking opportunities. The majority of individuals I work with either as a client or as a community partner I’ve met or have been connected with through one of the Chamber offerings. I see firsthand what the Chamber does on a daily basis to help advocate the needs of the business community and that is definitely something I want to be a part of.
