“Building Business & Supporting Community”
Did you know Lake Forest has a Chamber of Commerce? The Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce was founded 6 years ago and strives to provide valuable resources and networking opportunities for local businesses. We recently sat down with the Chamber Board of Directors to learn about the many services the Chamber offers its members:
1. What is the Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce and how does it serve local businesses?
The Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce is an organization of professional men and women who have joined together to promote the City of Lake Forest and Lake Forest businesses. Working with the city we devote our time to activities designed to create more exposure and opportunities for our members.
2. What is the Chamber's mission?
Our mission is to help stimulate and support a strong relationship among the business community, the residents and the City of Lake Forest. By promoting the economic business environment we are enhancing the quality of life here in Lake Forest.
3. How does the Chamber promote local businesses?
The chamber is dedicated to providing opportunities for chamber members to help promote their businesses. This is accomplished through ribbon cuttings, meet and greet mixers, hosting a mixer, becoming an advertising sponsor or having a display table at different chamber/city events, and attending Secrets & Strategies to Business Success (SSBS). SSBS is an annual partnership event with the City of Lake Forest, attended by over 100 business owners. Topics are presented by experts in their respective industries providing insight and valuable tips for entrepreneurs. The chamber also partners with the City in promoting businesses and their services during the annual Shop and Dine Lake Forest Week.
4. Who can join the Chamber of Commerce?
The chamber membership is comprised of small to large corporations, but no matter what size the business is, we all are working together to help strengthen the business climate in Lake Forest.
