The formation of a local Chamber of Commerce can have a profound effect upon a community, and it is difficult to imagine it can begin so easily! Your community or region needs an individual or group determined to form an organization that will bring business people and other residents together to foster trade and industry, stimulate development, and generally promote the well-being of the community.
Usually the most challenging task is overcoming preconceptions about forming a local chamber: that it will require considerable money and that setting up the organizational machinery will be difficult and costly. This is not the case!
