Membership

Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce Mission

Our mission is to promote the prosperity of local businesses and the well being of the community as a whole.

A membership in the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce is less than the cost of a small ad in the local newspaper and provides your business with a year of exposure, expertise and promotion.  We dedicate ourselves to strengthening your business by providing advocacy, resources and opportunities that you otherwise do not have access to.
