• A Letter from the Board of Directors

  • Dear friends and fellow business owners,

    Welcome to the Fox Valley Chamber of Commerce!


    The Fox Valley Chamber is about engagement, innovation and business education. We focus on hosting events that create referral and collaboration opportunities along with interactive business education with practical application to help drive our businesses forward. It's about doing more business and doing that business better. Our members are extremely active and we believe engagement drives value for our members who build lasting relationships and many times, lifelong friendships.


    We are uniquely positioned as a regional chamber as we serve as a bridge between all of the communities along the Fox Valley area. Our members, as well as our events, run from Elgin to St Charles to Geneva, Batavia, West Chicago, Aurora and Oswego.


    We are run by business owners, not administrators.  Our leadership and innovation comes directly from our members.  We are on a continual path for innovation and evolution for networking, business practices and marketing. These efforts have a direct impact on your business.

    With nearly 200 members, we have a healthy mix of B2B and B2C members.  You will find solopreneurs as well as 100 employee companies with passion and energy common among all of them.

    The Fox Valley Chamber of Commerce. You are welcome to visit one of our next events, we are sure you’ll feel right at home.
