About Our Chamber
History of our Chamber
As West Oakland’s Regional Chamber, we are the chamber of commerce for Walled Lake, Wixom, Wolverine Lake Village, Commerce, Waterford and White Lake townships and the Union Lake Business District. We have proudly served these communities since 1950.
Over the years, the Chamber has grown into a respected and valuable asset to local business and the community at large. With approximately 400 members, the Chamber represents a diversified group of businesses.
The mission of the Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is to partner with business, civic and other community interests to provide a forum for their respective concerns, while providing business advocacy in the economic development of the Greater West Oakland area.
Many people think a Chamber of Commerce is part of their local government. Although at times we work closely with them, the chamber is not a part of the local government. Our purpose is to improve the quality of life for businesses and residents in the lakes area. We act as a unified voice on behalf of the business community, and provide a forum to discuss and review topics of interest within the lakes area.
In addition, we serve as a source of information and develop programs that are responsive to the needs of the communities we serve. We encourage both individuals and businesses to participate in our chamber.
The Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce staff is here to serve you and your business. We have a dedicated team of professionals that are available to help, Monday – Thursday, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. Whether you have a simple question or you need a reference for a member, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to helping you.
