The Byron Area Chamber of Commerce is a community-based organization that supports progress and growth in the areas of commerce, industry, agriculture, civics, economics, education, and culture in the City of Byron and the surrounding areas.
The Chamber was established in 1958 by concerned business people in the community who saw a need for an organization to deal with emerging challenges in the area, while also supporting the excellent traditions of the community. Through the years, the Chamber has been a strong voice for area businesses and has provided many services to its members and to the Byron area community.
Opportunities to serve the area have developed and expanded, and the Byron Area Chamber of Commerce continues to be a viable and valuable business organization today.
Chamber board members serve three-year terms and are elected by the membership-at-large at the Chamber's Annual Dinner in April. Board members represent a cross-section of Byron area businesses and share a common interest in making Byron and the surrounding area a better place to live, work, and play.
The board meets the second Wednesday of each month. Chamber members are welcome to contact the President or Executive Director to suggest agenda items.
The Chamber hosts luncheon meetings at various locations on the 1st Tuesday of each month. The program, which begins at noon, includes a featured speaker and Chamber and community announcements. This informal lunch meeting provides attendees with an excellent opportunity to network with other Chamber members.
The Byron Chamber offers members a wide range of opportunities to promote their business. Benefits are designed to assist in networking your business, making new contacts, increasing public exposure, saving money, and making a positive contribution to the community.
The Chamber is pleased to serve a current membership of over 165 local businesses and organizations.
Any business, school, organization, or professional businessperson located in or doing business in the Byron area is eligible to be a member of the Byron Area Chamber of Commerce. As the area grows, the Chamber will benefit members through its efforts to increase economic, financial, and educational excellence. Being part of the Chamber increases your effectiveness in the community through the Chamber's abilities to work as your business advocate, your information center, and your networking organization. When you hire the Chamber, you get the services of its staff and volunteers, as well as the state and national organizations to which the Chamber belongs.
