Who We Are

At the Salem Chamber, we believe that the whole community thrives when the business community is healthy. 

Our mission

To serve as your business and community advocate and work to keep Salem a great place where business can prosper and families can live, work, play, and shop

Our vision

Our goal is for Salem to be known as the most business friendly place in Oregon. Customer service within municipalities and our commitment to preparing youth for the workforce will be second to none. Salem will be known as the hub for recreational activity within the Willamette Valley, attracting families and entrepreneurs.

Scope of work

Our work revolves around three pathways:

Advocacy – Communities depend on strong economies in order to thrive. As the positive voice for business with government, we have your back when it comes to making sure public policy issues have a positive impact on your business.

Involvement – By building relationships and developing leadership skills in youth and adults, we ensure that we get highly-qualified individuals serving in the community, which creates a higher quality of life where business can thrive.

Visibility – All businesses rely on customers to keep their doors open. Attracting customers is one of the biggest challenges a business will face. We work to promote local businesses, keeping our community and economy strong.
