The Orion Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to facilitating community leadership to create economic prosperity. That leadership begins with you, our members. We welcome the chance to work with you on important issues that will shape our area’s future prosperity. From education to small business, community relations to business recruitment, Chamber involvement is a great way to connect your company with the local community, build a positive reputation and network to expand your resources. Members who participate on committees quickly learn that there are strong benefits to their chamber membership. Not only do committees allow them to build relationships with other business leaders, they also find opportunities to further their business interests.

Complete descriptions for all of our opportunities are listed below.

Community Business Expo Committee
For more than 10 years, the Chamber has organized a business and community expo in May. Held at the Lake Orion High School during parent/teacher conferences for one night, more than 100 exhibitors and 1,000 visitors have an opportunity to learn more about the products and services offered locally. The Committee meets monthly November through February to solicit sponsors, exhibitors and door prizes for the event. It meets more often March through May as the even approaches.
