A Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary federation of the business community, uniting the efforts of business and professional individuals to ensure a healthy economic and social base to benefit the entire community. The Chamber represents and promotes the area's economy, and encourages business and industrial investment, broadening the tax base and helping to provide employment. Essentially, the Chamber is the voice of business. To business prospects and newcomers, the Chamber represents the community's image.

The policies and programs of the Chamber are determined by its Board of Directors, elected by the members. They employ a paid chief executive officer, whose primary responsibility is to organize and execute the Chamber's programs and carry out its policies.


The Porterville Chamber of Commerce was chartered in 1907, and has evolved into one of the key leaders in community development. Its influence will continue to be felt throughout the community as the Chamber meets the very ambitious objectives and strict standards it has set for itself.


The Porterville Chamber is a non-profit organization of business and professional people committed to the betterment of their community through economic development and a strong, healthy business environment. These members of the community volunteer their labor and talent as an organized group, because they recognize that . . . "We can do together, what no one can do alone". And, together as the Porterville Chamber, they are "People Promoting Business for the Benefit of the Community".


The Chamber has a variety of business resource materials available to its members, from business start-up packages to compliance poster sets. Through our established partnerships, we can also refer you to a variety of sources to assist with such things as business plan development and employee recruitment and retention.
