About Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce
THE MISSION OF THE SACRAMENTO METRO CHAMBER is to foster regional economic prosperity, an undertaking sought since 1895 when the Metro Chamber was first established.
The Metro Chamber is the region's leading business organization for promoting economic strength and serving as a unified voice of business throughout the six-county Sacramento region. As one of the largest chambers in California, we bring business interests to the forefront of civic and community leaders' agendas, inspiring landmark economic development projects, important public policy issues and business growth.
OUR VISION remains steadfast: to be a catalyst in transforming the Sacramento region into an international center for commerce, learning, culture, and recreation.
As reported by The Sacramento Bee, on a July evening in 1895, Sacramento Mayor B.U. Steinman called a town hall meeting to order with a stirring address offering the many benefits that would come to pass as the result of formalizing a Chamber of Commerce. A Chamber of Commerce was something every well-trained city should have to promote trade and local industries and to do many things that were in the interest of the progress of the city.
