    Our organization is celebrating 110 years of serving the Monterey Peninsula community. We are a proven catalyst for business vitality, a convener for leaders and influencers, a connector for our members (new and old, small and large) and a champion for stronger communities. The Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce has a strong commitment to the betterment of our community, seeking solutions for a healthy economy, housing affordability, improved education and learning, environmental stewardship, and maintaining our community assets—all so that we can continue to improve our quality of life and assist in the growth and prosperity of our members’ businesses. 

    In this pursuit, we advocate on the behalf of our members on numerous ongoing initiatives, including, the following examples: assuring a drought-proof water supply for the Monterey Peninsula; championing local preference policies to encourage more government contracting with local businesses; recognizing family-friendly and child-friendly business practices; assisting in building an entrepreneurial eco-system; promoting the movement of people and goods safely and efficiently on well-maintained roads; supporting fair and effective fees and taxation for local businesses; streamlining rules and regulations; and, protecting our coastal shores and fisheries.

    We share a proud heritage that built this community with many local partnerships, and we continue to prepare for future generations to enjoy a greater level of prosperity.
