TRAVERSE CITY: November 24, 2015, marks 100 years of the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce’s commitment to bringing growth and prosperity to the City of Traverse City.

Founded in 1915, a small group of local business leaders began an organization that would shape the future of Traverse City, physically and economically.

Within months of its creation, the Chamber of Commerce aided in getting the Boardman River Bridge built to connect the downtown with the city’s waterfront, was instrumental in building an airport for the area and played an essential part in getting a Coast Guard Station in Traverse City.

From leadership development programs to capital access to networking opportunities and events, the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce takes pride in supporting our region’s economic health and developing landscape. Current opportunities include Business After Hours, the Annual Business Expo and the Traverse City Young Professionals.

Serving over 2,000 businesses in the Grand Traverse region, the extraordinary men and women of the Chamber, over the past century, have left a lasting mark on the community which continues today.

The City of Traverse City congratulates the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce and all of the men and women who help make our community prosperous and strong. Thank you!
