The Chamber is a non-profit 501(c)(6) organization financed through membership dues investment and revenue generated by programs and events. The Chamber is not a government agency and does not receive public funds for any of its operations.
The Chamber programs, committees, and events are managed by an experienced team of staff members who work on behalf of the membership daily to ensure that the organization operates in a professional business manner. The strength of the organization is through the large contingent of dedicated business volunteers who serve on the board of directors. These volunteers willingly share time, talent, energy, ideas, and expertise ensuring the decisions made are balanced and in the best interest of the community.


The Board of Directors is the principal governing body of the organization. The board’s membership is diverse, with corporate and small business leaders serving to represent the business community of Huntington Beach. Board members determine the Chamber’s policy positions on business issues and advise the Chamber on strategies and policies.
Board members are volunteer investors in the Chamber and donate their time heading and attending committee meetings, assisting event execution and representing the Chamber out of the office. Representatives are responsible for attending full board meetings once per month for the length of their term.
