  • The Manhattan Area Chamber is firmly rooted in Manhattan history. We are proud to have been a guiding force within this community since 1925.
  • The Manhattan Area Chamber is the voice of business in the Manhattan region. Our public affairs team works with city, county, state and federal policymakers on behalf of business and helps businesses navigate governmental issues.
  • Nine out of 10 Chamber members are small to mid-size enterprises. So, serving small business members isn't a 'program' here, it's what we do every day. 
  • The Manhattan Area Chamber is the region's largest business organization. With 800+ member businesses, we represent over 17,000 employees.
  • When you shop locally, the sales tax dollars from your purchases go back into making our communities greater. Those sales tax dollars help fund our roads, parks, schools, fire departments and more. So shop here, buy here and help us keep Manhattan great!
