Welcome to the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce!
Vision: To be a leading business resource in the Blue Water Area
Mission: Promoting Blue Water Area businesses by providing business advocacy, education and assistance.
Since 1917, the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce has served the business and community needs of the greater Port Huron, Fort Gratiot, and Marysville area. We're committed to developing a vibrant business environment while preserving and enhancing our unique quality of life. Currently, over 400 businesses and community organizations make up the Chamber, providing volunteers who take an active role in community initiatives through the work of the Chamber's standing committees.
The Chamber responds to thousands of requests each year for information about relocation, both business and residential, tourism, demographics, community events...the list is endless! You'll find answers to hundreds of questions as you explore this website.
Led by a Board of Directors and a professional staff, the Chamber sponsors workshops and seminars for business owners and professionals and communicates issues and celebrates member news through a weekly NewsBrief. The Chamber collaborates closely with other community development groups, local government and the Port Huron Area School District, playing a crucial role in nurturing the quality of life in the Port Huron Area.
The Board of Directors has been laser focused on growing and serving our membership through advocacy, education and assistance programs, improving our technological capabilities for referral management, strict fiscal reporting and analysis, and working closely with our colleagues at the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce to improve cross border commerce.
As a result of our hard work, the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce earned the Outstanding Chamber of the Year Award in 2007 and 2010.
