It is a great time to be a part of the Livingston Parish Chamber, and we thank our members for their ongoing investment in this organization that is here primarily for two reasons.  To make business better and to make our communities better.
The Chamber represents nearly 500 businesses and organizations, each dedicated to serving business, enhancing our communities and advancing the economy in Livingston Parish.
We continue to develop programming that will make a difference in helping members succeed and communities compete. The Chamber leadership is committed to delivering value on your investment by providing access to business resources and information to help you spend more of your time doing what you do best. And, as always, we will remain dedicated to representing the interests of our local business members to government.Our goal is to be your “go to” resource – connecting members to the tools, resources, and information necessary to be successful while ensuring the future prosperity and economic vitality of our local community.

Let me encourage you as a member to engage in your Chamber. Our pledge is to provide members with meaningful opportunities to connect, learn and belong. SWe look forward to connecting with you!
