    The Chamber strives to make Los Gatos a better place to work, live and play. Through our many programs and events, we strengthen and promote member businesses while enhancing the unique quality of life in our community.

    If you are a local businessperson, we invite you to join the Chamber. Chamber membership offers a way to become part of a larger network, providing opportunities for meeting new people and gaining additional exposure.

    THE LOS GATOS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PROVIDES RESOURCES FOR BUSINESSES AND THE COMMUNITY:

    • All member businesses, large or small, have access to the knowledge and experience of fellow Chamber members.
    • Our collective voice on local and state issues shapes the business environment of the future and the culture of our town.
    • Chambers can do things to help member businesses when they do not have the time or resources to advertise or plan events.
    • Chamber membership allows for great networking opportunities. By increasing contact and awareness among businesses, Chamber members develop strong relationships within the local business community.
    • When it comes to representing the needs of the business community, there is indeed strength in numbers. When issues arise that impact businesses, the Chamber goes to work to present a unified voice and explain the perspective of the businesses in town. As a result, member businesses gain representation and credibility.
    • The Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce also benefits the community by organizing events and programs for business development.
    • The Chamber also serves as the Visitors Bureau to promote Los Gatos as a “destination location.”
