The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of business and professional men and women joined together for the purpose of promoting the civic and commercial progress of our community.
The area's economic well-being is directly related to the caliber of work that is accomplished by The Chamber. Therefore, The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce has a major impact on business, income, and future growth of the area.
There are two primary functions of a chamber of commerce:
To act as a spokesperson for the business and professional community, and translate into action the group thinking of its members, and;
To render specific services of a type that can not be effectively rendered by any other community organization both to its members and to the community as a whole.
To be recognized as the proactive voice of business in efforts to maximize potential for the success and profitability of its members and as the leader in creating and strengthening collaborative relationships to foster community economic development and to enhance the quality of life in central Illinois.
