The Chamber’s Unique History
In May 2013, the Swansea Chamber of Commerce reached out to the former Fairview Heights Chamber of Commerce members with an invitation to join their Chamber and create a new combined Chamber of Commerce. The new group, the Metro-East Regional Chamber of Commerce, will serve businesses in Fairview Heights and Swansea as well as business members in surrounding communities.
This Chamber of Commerce was organized to provide its members with the services, information, marketing, and resources to sustain and support their businesses, as well as to create opportunities for a healthy economic and tax base in support of the Village of Swansea and City of Fairview Heights.
Additionally, the Chamber of Commerce will continue to encourage the development of transportation and communication facilities and the various resources of the area as well as advocating laws and regulations beneficial to businesses in general.
The Metro-East Regional Chamber of Commerce is non-partisan, non-sectarian, and shall take no part in or lend its support to the election or appointment of any candidate.
