The Chamber Delivers

The Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce delivers on your wish list and more. In fact, your company’s Chamber membership is available for use by all of your employees. Look at the Calendar of Events and you’ll see something happening nearly every week.

And even when coming to an event doesn’t work for you, your Chamber membership still generates value. Member companies are listed several ways in the Online Business Directory to make it easy to search. Support other civic-minded Chamber businesses and identify those you want to meet. Also, the Chamber is constantly asked for referrals, and we refer only Chamber members.

What our members have to say:

Advance Beverage Company has been a Chamber member for almost 60 years. During that time our business has grown and thrived. So has the Chamber. Our business community is blessed to have a strong Chamber that supports a pro-business and pro-growth agenda. We at Advance Beverage Company are proud of our long standing membership in the Chamber and encourage all local businesses to become members. Together, we are stronger.

The Chamber provides many cost effective benefits to us. We rely on them to fight anti-business legislation and to identify those candidates for public office that will support our local business community.
