What is the Chamber of Commerce?
The Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization, independent of government. Its activities are carried out through the volunteer contributions and talents of the service, business, industrial, and professional individuals that comprise its membership. The Humboldt & District Chamber of Commerce (HDCC) has been doing work in Humboldt for 110 years. Membership has grown over 70% in the past few years with the Chamber reaching 261 members in 2015. While once an organization that focussed on the City of Humboldt, we are now reaching out to the entire region and encompass businesses within a 50+km radius of Humboldt. We have 2 full-time employees to serve your needs.
Who is the Chamber of Commerce?
The Chamber of Commerce is comprised of a volunteer membership that is governed by officials elected from its membership. Various committees are formed to support the many aspects of your community and the objectives of our mandate. Membership is open to businesses of all sizes,
professional groups or any individual “directly or indirectly engaged in trade, commerce, or the economics and social welfare” of our community.
If you are doing business in this area, you are participating in the economy of the community. The one organization actively devoted to developing, protecting and expanding that opportunity is
your local Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber works for its members, being the spokesperson for business and professional communities, and by promoting commercial, industrial, social and civic interests of our community. We will continue to be the leader in addressing the issues affecting the Humboldt district business climate and ensuring that the Humboldt Region is the Best Place to Live, Work & Invest.
