Founded in 1906, the Auburn Chamber of Commerce has a long history with an impressive list of accomplishments for business and community. The Chamber supports, represents, promotes, and advocates for business before local government and regulatory agencies. From its early beginings, local business visionaries established the Auburn Chamber of Commerce to, in the words of their charter, "have a central body, always organized and always ready to take up any proposition for the public good." With those simple but direct words to guide the Auburn Chamber, we have worked with business leaders and local government to take a historic small mining and railroad town and transform it into a modern city. Today, the Auburn Chamber has a membership of over 750 businesses.
The Chamber, a non-profit 501 (c) (6) organization, utilizes its Mission Statement as a benchmark against which all activities and programs for business, outlined in its Strategic Plan, are measured.
