Established in 1918, the Elmhurst Chamber is a voluntary organization of business and professional men and women who have joined together for the purpose of “promoting an environment that creates success for local businesses and our community.”

We welcome you to join forces with the largest organization in the City of Elmhurst representing the needs of our business community and the third largest chamber of commerce serving County of DuPage.

Return on Investment (ROI) will come from your selections of the services, programs and events that provide opportunities for networking and referral, business promotion, development and education, governmental advocacy, community engagement and leadership building.
