Become a Friend of the Chamber!

A Friend of the Chamber membership provides a way for community members to support the efforts of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce.

We are 75+ years strong and our mission continues “To promote and maintain a healthy business climate and to preserve and enhance the quality of life in Lafayette.” All aspects that make up a community are important to us: 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 our community.

A lifetime Friend of the Chamber membership is $150 per family. Please contact us at info@lafayettechamber.org to learn more about becoming a Friend of the Lafayette Chamber! Thank you to our current friends! Ready to become a Friend? Click here to join.
