Membership of the Mission Chamber continues to grow in many different sectors.

Store front businesses with less than five employees and home-based businesses see the many advantages of being part of the Chamber. Money-saving discounts, endless networking opportunities and community connections that are offered by the Chamber continue to be valued. Educational seminars offered throughout Small Business Month help Mission businesses acquire the skills to work on the many obstacles and challenges small and large business face each year.

The community is moving forward with development and with that comes new businesses.

Join us in welcoming 24 new Chamber Members that signed on this year:
