Chamber Alliance of Lake County
About Us

What is the Chamber Alliance?

The Chamber Alliance of Lake County, Inc., is a non-profit advocacy organization, providing a unified voice for Lake County chambers of commerce and their members at the County, State and National level. The Chamber Alliance advocates on behalf of participating Chambers on issues of common interest before various civic and governmental agencies.

What are the benefits of the Chamber Alliances?

With over 90% of Lake County businesses having less than 50 employees, the area’s small businesses generally rely on trade associations or Chambers of Commerce to represent their interests to the various levels of government. By working through the Chamber Alliance, local chambers can more effectively advocate for the needs of their members.

“Our chamber members, both from the public and private sectors, are impacted everyday by local, state and federal laws. The Chamber Alliance help us better represent our members’ interests with the various levels of government.”
— Ray San Fratello, President, South Lake Chamber of Commerce

What are some of the projects the Alliance is working on?

The Chamber Alliance has a variety of projects that benefit its members. Projects include:

Advocating for legislation that improves our roads, recreational facilities, lakes and business climate.
Spearheading the creation of a 20 year economic development vision plan.
Seeking Congressional approval of association based group insurance legislation.

How do I learn more or participate in the Chamber Alliance Activities?

The Chamber Alliance comprises 3,500 businesses represented through eight Lake County Chambers of Commerce. You may contact one of the participating Chambers to learn how you can get involved in this worthwhile community and business initiative.
