"To play a critical and integral role in maintaining a healthy business environment, contributing to the economic growth of the city, and enhancing the city's image."
The Arcadia Chamber of Commerce, with a membership of some 700 leading businesses and citizens, serves primarily as the voice of the business community as well as the public relations arm of the City and the "front door" through which new visitors to Arcadia from around the world, are given a warm welcome to our "Community of Homes."
In 1965, the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce became the geographic hub, as well as the civic hub of the City when it moved into its eye-catching circular office at the west end of the Civic Center island where Holly Avenue meets Huntington Drive, across from the famous Santa Anita Race Track.
In addition to its annual programs to promote the Arcadia business community and encourage residents to "Shop Arcadia", the Chamber sponsors a variety of events including monthly networking breakfasts and luncheons, Business Expos and fund raisers such as the popular "Taste of Arcadia" held at the L A County Arboretum each September. The Chamber also produces and distributes thousands of City Street maps and Business Directories.
