The West Suburban Chamber of Commerce believes that a wide array of perspectives allows us, as the collective voice of the region, and all organizations throughout the region to be more effective. We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion throughout our communities. We are also dedicated to greater diversity and inclusion within our own organization and provide equal opportunity to people of all protected classes including, but not limited to: race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identification, ability, income, marital status, age, geographic location, philosophy and veteran status in all levels of staff and governance. We encourage our leaders and members to embrace principles intended to promote diversity as a matter of fairness and effectiveness throughout our region.

The mission of the committee is to find avenues of collaboration and integration to facilitate healthier and safer communities. The committee will do this by hosting an annual Health + Wellness Fest each September, for members, business nonmembers and the community. The intention is to create partnerships around community health and wellness needs for the entire region. Meets every month and more frequently in July and August. Part of this committee's job is securing sponsorships and vendors.
The Chamber is a critical partner and leader in influencing legislation and regulation on local, state and federal levels. We work proactively, supporting legislation that promotes a vibrant business community and, when necessary, opposing legislation that unnecessarily inhibits commerce. The Chamber will educate and inform members and bring together elected officials on key policy issues affecting business.
This committee's mantra is: Every story is valuable and every voice counts! A dynamic group of both female professionals (and a few men, too!), this group connects and collaborates with passionate, professional women to offer and receive resource-rich support and professional development services on a regional scale. Three events per year, meetings every other month.
This committee explores all potential, region-wide initiatives in which chamber involvement could secure the greatest possible economic benefits for WSCCI member businesses and residents.
