Our mission is to provide leadership and representation in order to benefit the members operating businesses in the Rogers Park community.
Our vision is to guide businesses, service organizations and individuals to establish new businesses and promote existing businesses within the Rogers Park community. To create and stimulate an orderly economic growth, thereby enriching Rogers Park's diverse population.
The Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce supports the economic development of Rogers Park businesses by encouraging residents to spend their money in our stores and restaurants through our Shop Local campaign.
We encourage visitors to dine and shop Rogers Park via tourism with our many events at local restaurants, cafes and independently owned shops. We are cultivating tradition, which is a major factor in community-building, with our Annual events including our Chamber Art Auction, Anniversary celebrations and the upcoming annual Taste of Rogers Park.
You can call or stop by anytime to join us in making Rogers Park a better place to live, work and visit.
