Chamber Profile

The South Chicago Chamber has been serving the South Chicago Community since the early 1900’s. The group was incorporated in 1924 to “Help promote and strengthen the South Chicago Business District”. You can not have a strong district without a strong community and you can not have a strong community without a strong business district!
