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.”
70 years later, the Chamber has grown to include more than 600 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.
