About the Columbia Chamber
Since 1905, the Columbia Chamber of Commerce has been a voluntary, member-supported organization of business, industrial and professional people who are dedicated to developing, promoting and maintaining a sound and healthy economic climate for Columbia. The Chamber is a non-profit organization with more than 1,000 members working together to enhance the Columbia business community.
Members include businesses of all sizes, from one-person shops to large corporations. Approximately 80% of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce members are smaller businesses with fewer than 20 employees.
Columbia offers small-town friendliness with big city features and a high quality of life for people of all ages and interests. Though the city was founded on education, its location also makes it an attractive spot for businesses and travelers. Located on Interstate 70 and U.S. Highway 63, Columbia is right in the middle of the state and the nation. Just a couple hours drive from St. Louis and Kansas City, Columbia is Boone County’s largest population center and has received numerous national awards and recognitions. If you want to raise a family, continue your education, retire or start a new business, Columbia is the place to be!
