The Chamber Coalition of Northeast Indiana
The Regional Chamber Coalition of Chambers is the regional business advocacy group for Northeast Indiana. The Coalition works across the region on business climate-related issues that surpass the traditional geographical boundaries of 17 local Chambers. The Coalition is a collaboration of 17 Chambers of Commerce from eleven counties, including Adams, Allen, Dekalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, Lagrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells, and Whitley counties in Indiana. Collectively, the group represents some 4,200 businesses and more than 300,000 employees in the region. The Chamber Coalition, founded in 2010, works with business, government, and community leaders to influence key public policy issues necessary to help grow the region. Coalition members recognize that together they can offer a broader range of services, benefits, and competitive advantages to businesses in the region and represent a stronger, more influential voice on behalf of the business community. The Chamber Coalition has equal representation from each community in the geographic area. It works collectively to develop a regional agenda and strategic vision, utilizing each represented organization’s existing staff and expertise. Chamber Coalition members gather monthly or as needed to align the strategic vision and coordinate regional initiatives.
