Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce
The Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce serves a unique population not only within Oakland County, one of the most prosperous counties in the country, but within the State of Michigan. Representing a community where Fortune 500 companies are located down the road from the locally-owned coffee shop, the Chamber understands that growing businesses — of any size — are the common value of our membership.
The Chamber was founded in 1991 by a group of businesses committed to putting Auburn Hills on the map. With its humble beginnings in the coat closet of what is now the Crowne Plaza Hotel off of I-75, the Chamber today boasts an office suite found in the city’s ever-expanding downtown. The membership is approximately 275 businesses, with 30% growth on an annual basis. We are starting to see a rebound post recession that is exciting in our high tech, manufacturing and automotive town.
The Auburn Hills Chamber serves hundreds of companies in a city that is 80% business, including global companies, a renowned sports and entertainment complex, a regional shopping center and hundreds of hotels, restaurants, and locally owned businesses which support our thriving economy. You’ll find our focus and programming to be reflective of this dynamic culture.
In addition, 30,000 students are educated each year in our community’s universities, medical school, law school, community colleges and award-winning school district. Connecting employers to future talent is an important value as we rebuild and retool our workforce. As such, the Chamber offers events centered around these goals. We’re also known for our high-performance internship program which models best practices in career training and development.
The Chamber is at the heart of the community, connecting our members to one another and to opportunities for commerce. A core value is also supporting our non-profit organizations, which provide vital services to area residents while allowing businesses to embrace their mission. There are many ways to engage with our local community both through the Chamber and directly through our members.
