Welcome to the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce

The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce is the membership program of the Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation. Our mission as stated in the by-laws is “to encourage and assist our members in achieving their full economic potential for the benefit of themselves and of the entire community. The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce, as an effective leader, strives to strengthen economic viability within Los Alamos by actively representing, promoting and defending business interests.”

The Executive Director of the Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation (LACDC) currently serves as the Executive Director of the Chamber. The Chamber receives support from LACDC by way of the business office and management, and we share costs with LACDC’s other functions for things like office supplies, space, maintenance, network and phones.

We offer member benefits in the areas of visibility, resources and advocacy. The visibility comes in the form of events (like Chamberfest and Trick or Treat on Main Street), web presence (the web traffic catcher pages and websites like LosAlamosChamber.com and FYILosAlamos.com) and networking opportunities (like the business after hours FAN Clubs, the lunch networking FAN44s, ribbon cuttings, grand openings, anniversary celebrations) and our publications - Mind Your Business and Los Alamos Business which features Chamber members.

We provide resources in workshops on various topics such as health insurance, educational business breakfasts, and use of our bulk mail service and conference rooms.

We advocate for Los Alamos business and tourism interests. For instance, we've advocated on behalf of the Valles Caldera, on behalf of lab subcontractors, on behalf of retail tenants working with landlords, on White Rock improvements and in regards to misperceptions of County planning and permitting processes.

Chamber membership is growing steadily, dues have not increased in several years, we’ve had an office in the same location for several years, and the credibility of the Chamber has increased steadily in the community. We are unique in the State, in that our membership grows while other Chambers struggle and combine forces.

We have a great team working at the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and we are actively building a vibrant community through a thriving economy. We hope you'll join us in this mission.
