The Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce
The Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce is a private, not-for-profit organization that is made up of area businesses, professional offices and other service organizations. It is the voice of private enterprise in Gulfport, South Pasadena and the region surrounding them.
Members know that a generally profitable business community within a well governed, business friendly environment is the basic essential for meaningful job creation and the economic well being of area residents. Therefore, many diverse economic entities that often compete with one another have banded together in an organization dedicated to the overall prosperity of the area it serves.
The Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce goes beyond the traditional role of promoting the virtues of its area to the world by sponsoring a broader based and more comprehensive program of work designed to improve the regional business and residential climate. Task forces of business and professional people are now engaged in area marketing/public relations, economic development/redevelopment and public/governmental affairs. A special incubator program for helping small business to start and grow has recently been established.
