Who is the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce?
Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce was formed in 1988 in order to unite the Coast’s individual communities into one unifi ed voice. Currently, there are four City Chambers of the Coast Chamber, they are: Biloxi Chamber, Gulfport Chamber, Long Beach Chamber and Pass Christian Chamber.
Each of these Chambers has its own program of work, as each organization represents a unique part of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. At the same time, however, the Chambers are united through their affi liation with the Coast Chamber. This allows them to have
a stronger voice when addressing issues that affect the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast. While each community along the Mississippi Gulf Coast is indeed unique, members of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce agree that joining together and focusing on our similarities is what makes us stronger.
When a new member joins one City Chamber, he or she is considered a member of the Coast Chamber and joins a network of over 2000 business contacts. The Coast Chamber operates as the parent company, existing to support the individual Chambers. The Coast Chamber also sponsors various committees that are made up of representatives of each City Chamber. These committees tackle broad issues that affect the Gulf Coast, while the City Chambers and their committees work on projects and issues within their own communities.
