|Org. Type:||Chamber of Commerce|
Arcadia, CA 91007
The original seeds were planted for the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce more than a century ago, only 11 years after Arcadia was incorporated as a city in 1903. But it would be several decades before the organization would take official form, and decades more before it grew to its current size.
The first group calling itself the Chamber of Commerce was formed on Sept. 19, 1921. During the 1920s and 1930s the Chamber absorbed the members of several other local business organizations such as the Arcadia Service association and the Arcadia Business Men’s association.
“To play a critical and integral role in maintaining a healthy business environment, contributing to the economic growth of the city, and enhancing the city’s image.”
