Welcome to the Auburn Chamber!

What We Do

The Auburn Chamber is a dynamic, member-driven organization dedicated to making Auburn a better place to do business. Every chamber has a different look, personality and set of benefits, but, in short, a chamber of commerce is the hub of the business community. The voice. The source of information. The place (in both a literal and figurative sense) to make connections, form partnerships and deepen ties. The helping hand. The community cheerleader. A chamber of commerce is where businesses go to be part of the bigger picture.

  • Advocate

    Every single day, the Auburn Chamber is working to make Auburn a better place to do business—even if you don’t know it’s happening. We attend local, regional and state meetings to monitor impactful business issues, identify opportunities and ensure that that the Auburn business community has a voice. Your membership dollars strengthen that voice.

    Have a concern or question about doing business in Auburn? Email Lolly Steiner, president, at lolly@auburnchamber.com.

  • Connect

    Connecting people and creating productive, community-strengthening partnerships are at the core of what we do. We are the hub of the business community. Whether it’s attending events, identifying and connecting with other members on social media, hosting an event or serving as a diplomat, there are limitless opportunities to find new customers, create new business partnerships and strengthen community ties. And having the benefit of a bird’s eye view of the business community, we’re always playing matchmaker; we refer and connect our members daily.

  • Inform

    Whether it’s details about the upcoming local election, or information about the next concert coming to the Plains, we believe an informed business community is a stronger, more engaged community. We send a weekly e-newsletter, a more robust quarterly update and emails as needed. You’ll also find a chamber and community calendar here.

  • Celebrate

    We take our celebration responsibilities very seriously. We’re your biggest fans! We love gathering to celebrate a business opening, recognizing the wealth of talent in our community at our annual meeting, or surprising a community gem with a Customer Service Crown.
