HISTORY AND ACTIVITIES
Founded in November of 1959 the mission of the San
Marino Chamber of Commerce is to promote the economic well-being of the
community, to be an advocate for its members and to provide community
The Chamber is governed by an eleven to fifteen
member Board of Directors, each serving a two-year term. Executive
Officers are chosen from the Board each year, and serve a two-year term.
Working in partnership with the City, the Chamber
plays an active roll in supporting the local businesses and in
recruiting new businesses to San Marino. Having been an active
participant in developing the City's Commercial Plan, the Chamber is
well equipped to assist prospective businesses in finding a suitable
location and obtaining the necessary permits and business licenses. The
Chamber is proud of the working relationship and what we have
accomplished in conjunction with the real estate and commercial property
brokers with listings in the City. We hope you will contact the Chamber
if we can be of assistance.
