As the world's largest business organization, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce connects a diverse membership, from small businesses and local chambers to leading industry groups and global corporations. A trusted advocate, the Chamber represents members on Capitol Hill, in state legislatures, and around the world, ensuring their voice is heard.

The Chamber regularly convenes industry leaders, local chambers, government officials, members of Congress, candidates, and others, to foster trust, enhance credibility and expertise, and promote partnerships and collaboration.

Our mission is clear: to build strong relationships among these groups, empower businesses to play a vital role in a healthy democracy, and shape policies that benefit all Americans.
