The heart of Albany’s business community since 1904, the Albany Area Chamber is the largest, strongest and most active business advocacy organization in the area. The Chamber brings business leaders together to accomplish collectively, what no one business could do alone. Professionally managed, goal-oriented and highly visible, the Chamber is dedicated to taking a pro-active community leadership role. Members have an array of opportunities to be involved in. By attending various events, seminars, special programs or becoming a part of a committee and task force Chamber members provide a united effort to improve the overall well-being of the community.

One of the greatest values of Chamber membership comes through its successful programs to improve the economic climate and quality of life in the Albany area. Chamber programs are developed to produce a healthy, expanding economy which creates more demand for goods and services, ultimately benefiting the entire community.
