About us

129 years of history designing a brighter future

We are for business

The Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce advocates for and supports the inclusive economic prosperity of our Capital Region by leading efforts for business.

We support our community in multiple ways:

Chamber

We provide businesses and individuals the programs, services and advocacy needed to build vibrant communities, a ready workforce, connected region and strong business.

Established in 1895, Metro Chamber is the largest, most prominent and established voice for business representing our business community and their workforce.

Foundation

The Metro Chamber Foundation’s mission is to create equitable paths to leadership, improve workforce diversity, and bring new ideas and skills into the workplace.

We currently operate and facilitate seven programs, building a pipeline of leaders and entrepreneurs starting in elementary school through senior level executives.

Metro-PAC

The Metro-PAC advocates at the local, state and federal level for the environment that business needs to succeed.

We endorse candidates that understand and value the important role of our business community and actively seek to engage and partner with them during their terms.

We represent the business community and their workforce in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.

Being new to the area I felt like Metro Chamber helped make such a big region feel like home. The introductions alone have made the joining fee worthy of the price. I am still surprised at how well they bring such a large community together to do business across the Sacramento area.

Sac State is a member of the Metro Chamber because of what they do for businesses, big or small. The university is only as strong as the business community is strong and vice versa.
