The U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce is excited to kickstart and build the largest national Coalition of Chambers of Commerce, with a particular focus in helping businesses become more sustainable! Through this, we hope to establish more effective collaboration through a diverse and extensive network of chambers from all backgrounds. This selective networking program looks for those with a passion for a better future, and those that want to see their business members grow alongside them.

Coalition Advisory Group
Through this coalition program, there will be a new-found cohesion between all of the chamber members. We are all striving to reach a new sustainable standard!
We encourage our members to contribute and exchange their ideas; so much so, that each chamber will be allowed to have one representative participate in our quarterly online advisory group meetings. We welcome any insights, ideas, or experiences you all may have.
Together, we are stronger!
