“We are the Chamber of Commerce, Claremore, Oklahoma, the town that needs no introduction to an intelligent audience.”
– Will Rogers, May 1926
For nearly 90 years, Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce has served as the voice of business in Claremore. Claremore Area Chamber was formally recognized as an official private non-profit corporation with a 501-C6 designation in 1942. The Chamber is a voluntary business organization with over 370 members.
Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce not only serves as a front door to the community but also continuously works to unite hundreds of business and professional firms. The Chamber offers a variety of services with the common goal of promoting a healthy economic atmosphere while preserving the excellent quality of life our community enjoys. Will Rogers recognized Chambers in the most humorous way in 1923 with this famous quote:
“The minute a fellow gets into the Chamber of Commerce he quits mowing his own lawn.”
The continuing mission of Claremore Area Chamber is to serve its membership; advance economic, industrial, professional, cultural, and civic welfare; and enhance the quality of life for the Claremore area.
