Since 1957, the Milpitas Chamber of Commerce has been working to
promote and enhance the commercial, professional,
economic and educational well being of Milpitas.
Over the years the Chamber has forged partnerships with all components of business, government, and the community to ensure resources are used more effectively to maintain the quality of life in Milpitas. The Milpitas Chamber is in the forefront of legislative issues.
While the Chamber sponsors community events such as the International Festival & BBQ, and the ever-popular Crab Feed, it primarily focuses on providing venues for businesses to showcase their products and services through such events as the monthly business-after-hours mixers, business breakfasts, educational business forums and connection clubs. The Chamber’s vision for the past several years has been to incorporate into the active program activities that would encourage more business-to-business interaction. Another goal has been to offer educational seminars and forums to better assist the needs of the business community.
As a resource and information center, the Chamber replies to thousands of inquiries about Milpitas. The office staff is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed for Lunch 1-2 p.m.) to assist you with information about the city and business community. The staff invites you to stop by the Chamber office.
