The Chamber of Commerce has existed as the voice of Brandon business for 133 years since its incorporation on May 14, 1883.
The power of over 800 delegates, representing over 600 different business types, sectors, and sizes, gives the Chamber a voice that can effectively speak louder than one business alone. Through the Chamber, the business community can be assured that the business perspective is heard on issues of the day.
