The Mission of the Havana Area Chamber of Commerce is to make Havana the best place possible to work, play, and raise a family.

We will achieve this by:

  • Representing the business interests of our members and serving as an advocate for the business community.
  • Working with other community resources to promote local tourism, create jobs, and recruit new businesses to Havana.
  • Sponsoring events that enhance the quality of life in the community.
  • Serving as a local catalyst to help make Havana a better place to live and work.

The Chamber works throughout the year to face new and existing issues of concern to the business community as they arise. We strive to communicate, educate and offer all resources possible to assist our membership in any way possible.

Join us in viewing some of the city events.
