The Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce recently embarked on the next phase of its strategic work to support the organization’s mission:
The Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce will lead and advocate on behalf of Oak Brook and Oakbrook Terrace business interests; and drive a positive business environment in the State of Illinois.
At the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce we aspire to provide the highest level of service and programs that deliver the most productive experience possible for members. And with this year’s creation of new goal-driven chamber councils and committees, we reached a higher level of member engagement and member satisfaction than ever before.
We are so grateful for the active and helpful leadership of nearly 250 council and committee members. These individuals provide great guidance and insights on specific industry needs and so many critical business issues related to: commercial real estate, business policy, banking and finance, hospitality and retail, workforce, technology and more. And, the establishment of the chamber’s new Young Business Leaders group, now with nearly 60 young professionals as members, has already begun developing strong future leaders for our business community.
In addition, over 400 more members participated on the chamber’s board and through chamber meetings and events, including forums, networking breakfasts, building fairs and special purpose functions to attract new companies and meetings and conventions to Greater Oak Brook. We can’t thank all of these individuals enough for their interest and involvement in these strategic activities.
The following pages describe more about the chamber’s council and committee goals. Please also read about our year-round work to attract and retain businesses through the Economic Development Partnership and to drive great leadership through the chamber’s public policy program. For more information on all of this work, please see www.obchamber.com, www.greateroakbrookpartnership.com and www.experiencegreateroakbrook.com.
Everything we do at the chamber is aimed at helping businesses succeed. Our members expect this from us, and we will continue to ensure that we live up to this high standard.
