The mission of the Monroe Chamber of Commerce is to create an environment in which our businesses thrive. When businesses flourish, they create jobs and more people go to work and our community grows and prospers. We envision a community where our children have abundant job opportunities without ever having to leave northeast Louisiana and we are committed to building that dream.

To create a business friendly community, we need good roads and infrastructure'. We need a regulatory and taxing environment that supports public works and safely, but is not so restrictive to business that it prohibits growth and development. We need a strong education system that produces skilled and trained graduates who are ready to succeed in the workplace or in college'. When we do all of this well, our efforts are reflected throughout the community and gives visitors to our region the very best first impression. It creates an image that makes us proud to be from Ouachita Parish.

Our members will always be at the forefront of all of our endeavors. We understand clearly our role as the leading business advocate in northeast Louisiana and WC' take that responsibility seriously. You are invited to join the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, and help us build a world class community where our businesses thrive and our children have the promise of a bright future.

Together, we are stronger.
