Who We Are

The Ventura Chamber of Commerce works year round to support a strong local economy through its stewardship of city policy and business development. From conception of development projects, through the approval process and into the future; safeguarding the vitality of existing business, business expansion and recruitment; it is indeed true that we are “Making Business Happen“.

One of the best ways to become informed and involved is to join a Chamber policy committee. Currently  the Ventura Chamber of Commerce has the following active policy committees and task forces: Economic Development Committee, Legislative Committee, Green Task Force, Energy Committee, and the Ventura Commerce and Education Foundation Committee. Key Executive Roundtable and issues focus groups as needed.

At the local level we are playing an increasing role as the voice of business when advocating public policy changes that stimulate and sustain growth for business resulting in the creation and retention of jobs. The Chamber remains committed to having a productive working relationship with lawmakers fostering a positive employment climate that will support global class schools and an outstanding quality of life for the citizens of the City of Ventura.

At the Ventura Chamber of Commerce, we believe in the power of diversity, equity, and inclusion to foster a vibrant and prosperous Ventura. We are committed to creating an environment where all individuals, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, religion, socioeconomic status, disability, or any other characteristic, feel valued, respected, welcome, and empowered.

Our chamber recognizes that diverse perspectives drive innovation, creativity, and economic growth. By advocating for fair and just policies, promoting equitable access to resources, and supporting initiatives that empower marginalized groups, we aim to create a level playing field where everyone has the opportunity to succeed. We are dedicated to creating spaces that are welcoming and accessible to all, where diversity is celebrated and differences are embraced.

As a Chamber of Commerce, we understand that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential principles that make Ventura a great place to live, work, and play. We are committed to continuously learning, evolving, and taking action to create a more equitable and inclusive future for all.
