Chamber Greeting

Welcome to St. Charles, the place we call home. Walk along the Fox River or bike through our parks, shop our quaint stores or enjoy a variety of cuisine at our restaurants, and you will see why those in business have always found St. Charles to be an attractive and sound investment.

A handful of dedicated people founded the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce in 1922, and from there we have grown to the 700-plus member organization we are today. Our members represent the best in all types of business. From retail trade and professional services to e-commerce and manufacturing businesses, the Chamber of Commerce is the No. 1 recognized name denoting reliable community information and dependable business referrals.

Our website,, receives thousands of hits every week, allowing us to enthusiastically market our member businesses. Members of our organization enjoy many benefits and opportunities, and can attend monthly After Hours events, Business Focus Groups, Women’s Business Council networking luncheons, our famous Paddleboat Mixer and other monthly events. Other member favorites are the Annual Charlemagne Awards Dinner, Annual Golf Outing, Business-to-Business Expo and State of the Chamber Breakfast Meeting.

Please use this resource as a way to find any product or service you are looking for among our members, who are listed in the back of this magazine. We encourage you to support our members and remember to “Shop St. Charles.” The Chamber is not a government body and does not receive any federal, state or local tax money. The Chamber is totally funded by member dues, sponsorships and fundraisers.

We welcome businesses into our association, and applaud those members who are long-term supporters. Members are the lifeblood of our organization, and we are proud to be at their service. We truly are “One Stop, One City, Countless Opportunities.”
