In any community, the profitable operation of businesses provides the basis from which all community benefits are derived. A healthy business community will provide the jobs and produce the wealth to finance all the government, civic, education, cultural and charitable needs of the community.

The Veneta-Fern Ridge Area Chamber of Commerce is organized to connect commerce and community support agencies. The Chamber promotes and coordinates efforts in commerce to create and maintain a healthy business environment in the Veneta-Fern Ridge area. It is a common vehicle through which business and professional people work together to enrich the lives of those in our area.

Members are what make the Chamber of Commerce tangible. Business owners, managers, employees, investors, and supporters are members of the Chamber. Professionals, educators, civic leaders, clergy, and organizational leaders are members. Chamber members provide the drive, the goals, the funds and the voluntary services to keep the Chamber operational.
