What's in it for Chamber?

Right at 75% of our over 2,000 members have 25 employees or less. But there's strength in those numbers. From single proprietorships to the largest employers in the region and the hundreds in between, when business speaks with one voice, the public sector cannot ignore the private.

As a private, member-supported, 501(c)6 organization, the Little Rock Regional Chamber receives no dedicated public funds. Therefore, none of the Chamber's work on behalf of the business community and region would be possible without our members' annual, sponsorship and economic development investments. Investment in the Chamber is not a charitable contribution, but a legitimate business development expense.

Our competition is not El Dorado, Jonesboro or Northwest Arkansas. It’s Dallas, Nashville and Oklahoma City. In order to effectively compete, we must marshal our resources with a strong, unified and broad-based business community.

What's in it for Region?

As America, and indeed the world, emerge from the greatest economic challenges in generations, the strength, diversity and resilience of our Central Arkansas economy cannot be taken for granted.

For the second year in a row, the Brookings Institution named the Little Rock region's economy America's fourth strongest. And yet, only one organization goes to work every day focused on leading the economy of the region, without regard to political, geographic or historic boundaries. For the Chamber, like your business, it's all about the marketplace – one million people within a 50-mile radius, experiencing and building unique communities and neighborhoods, but united by a common, globally recognized brand – Little Rock.

The results are historically unprecedented. In the past seven years, the Chamber has had a direct role in the creation of over $1.55 billion new capital investment, over $459 million new annual payroll, and over 12,000 new jobs. Put simply, when you do business with an employee of Welspun, LM Wind PowerHP or Caterpillar, or any number of other companies, your investment in the Chamber helped create that opportunity.

Here are just a few of the highlights our members' investment has accomplished in the past seven years:
