What is the difference between the Chamber and the City?

Chambers of Commerce and City Government are two separate entities that work closely together for the benefit of the community, especially in terms of business, economic development issues and legislative affairs. The Chamber is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit organization, but not a charitable organization (such as American Cancer Society.) Chambers are prohibited from endorsing political candidates, although Chambers do take a stand on issues that affect businesses.

The City is a municipal government and responsible for planning the future needs of the community and providing a range of services, such as public safety, quality of life, administrating a court system, roads, parks and sports facilities, community centers, water and sewer services to name a few. City Councils make local laws but operate within a legal framework set up by State and Territory Governments.
