about us

Chelsea Chamber of Commerce

Our History

Established in 1927 and incorporated in 1931, the Chelsea Chamber of Commerce turns 90 this year.  For nine decades we have sought to promote our members and connect them to the professional, financial, governmental, and educational resources they need to grow and strengthen their businesses and organizations.  And nearly 100 years later, we continue to do so.  

We believe our business and non-profit members contribute to a strong community via added jobs, focused educational paths, grant-writing, public spaces, and more.  That is why we partner with our members and non-members in business, education, workforce development, finance, the arts, the environment, and government to benefit not just our members or Chelsea businesses, but the Chelsea community as a whole.
