About Us

The Chamber is a volunteer based organization serving the interests of the business community with an ongoing commitment to the City of Lafayette.

In 1947 a group of concerned business persons launched the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce.

The stated mission of the organization was:

“To promote and maintain a healthy business climate and to preserve and enhance the quality of life in Lafayette.”

75+ years later, the Chamber has grown to include more than 700 businesses and professionals in Lafayette and neighboring areas. It remains the principal advocate for the business community, working to promote businesses in town and encouraging new enterprises to locate here.

All aspects that make up a community are important: schools, residents, churches and synagogues, community organizations, activities, and the city government. Chamber members work with representatives of all these groups for the betterment of the community.

Annual Chamber events include the Taste of Lafayette, the Lafayette Res Run for Education and the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival.

Proceeds from Chamber events are often shared with deserving nonprofit organizations in the community.

“We are very impressed with your Chamber. We have been members of other Chambers over the years and it’s been nothing like the experiences we’re having right out of the gate with your organization. Thank you for your great communication, follow up, and professionalism.”
– Peter Dewey, Bayview Painting

“I couldn’t have asked for a better resource than the Chamber, as I was establishing my medical practice in Lafayette. AJ, Holly, and Sara were so responsive to my questions and gave me many ideas on networking in the community. They host several events that foster community building. I honestly cannot imagine a more robust, active, and friendly chamber as this. I’m a member for life!”
– Cheruba Prabakar, Lamorinda Gynecology & Surgery

“WE LOVE THE CHAMBER! Batch and Brine has been a member of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce for almost six years. We value and appreciate the incredible amount of work this organization produces for our community through many events and support for each business. The networking and education of information that’s spilled out weekly for the business community is impressive. They are a helping hand in so many ways for our business community and beyond. We couldn’t be part of this community without being part of the chamber. Lafayette Chamber is one of the best organizations we’ve worked with, so don’t think twice about it, join the Chamber!” – Rolla Ghaben, Batch & Brine

“The Chamber was instrumental in helping us open 14 years ago. The staff went out of their way to help us make connections and ensure we were successful. We would not be where we are today without the Chamber!”
– John & Colleen McCormick, Lamorinda Music
