About the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

 

Who We Are

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization representing companies of all sizes across every sector of the economy. Our members range from the small businesses and local chambers of commerce that line the Main Streets of America to leading industry associations and large corporations. 

They all share one thing: They count on the U.S. Chamber to be their voice in Washington, across the country, and around the world. For more than 100 years, we have advocated for pro-business policies that help businesses create jobs and grow our economy.

 
What We Stand For

Every day, American businesses are serving people, solving problems, and saving lives. They are creating jobs—and with them, opportunity, security, and prosperity—in communities all across the country. This is hard work, with many uncertainties and obstacles, but America’s job creators get up and do it every day because they believe in the power of business to be a force for good in our society. 

At the Chamber, we get up every day to help them do it. The government plays a role, too. With the right decisions, our leaders can help rather than hinder business-led growth. That’s why we fight for the policies we need to help businesses lead our economy our of the worst downturn since the Great Depression and fight against the crippling partisanship that stymies progress. 

Businesses need the right regulatory environment, trade agenda, legal system, workforce policies, and rules for the modern economy in order to drive the growth that will lift our country and help our people. 
Our job is to help them get it.
