"Collaboration is one of the best kept secrets in creativity." -John Briggs


It’s passionpreneurs like you that make Arcata the best small business community. Arcata business people are known for supporting each other, for working together, and for sharing best practices.


The Arcata Chamber serves as the primary hub for connectivity and collaboration.


We provide forums for new ideas, new opportunities, and positive change to arise. We are a learning community that cultivates topics and skills that our members need most to thrive. We listen and take your perspective into regional planning meetings regarding the economy.


As a bonus, we’re non-political and proudly independent of the federal Chamber of Commerce.


Invest in your business community by becoming a member of the Arcata Chamber of Commerce. It’s a great way to support our progressive area and to ensure that we remain an inspired and evolved place to do business.
