Although the Allendale Area Chamber of Commerce wasn’t legally formed until 2006, Allendale businesses have been working together for many years. In 1953, local businesses worked to have a post office reestablished in the township and went on to attract a dentist, a doctor and a clinic. Business owners understand they are stronger when they work together.
Our reason to work together today is to build a better community by advancing prosperity. Everyone wants to have a bolstering business community and from looking back at history, we know we can’t do that alone.
The Chamber is that joining force. The Chamber Board of Directors will work to provide valuable benefits, access to information and an environment to succeed.
The Allendale Area Chamber of Commerce serves our members by advocating for business growth through leadership, collaboration, and strategic partnerships.
The Allendale Area Chamber of Commerce will be a trusted and recognized resource for the business community, serve an engaged and invested membership that supports a strong chamber of commerce, and leads collaborative efforts to enhance community development and its quality of life.
Organization & Governance:
