Our Story

In 1906, the Highland Chamber of Commerce was founded upon the leading economic industry of the time, agriculture.

Agriculture brings mankind and planet earth into a relationship requiring stewardship, care, planning, effort, a little bit of luck, and perseverance. 

As business cycles changed and American ingenuity affected process, the Highland business landscape slowly moved away from mostly agriculture and toward what we now recognize as service industries. 

Although the leading industry has changed, the same amount of stewardship, care, planning, effort, a little bit of luck, and perseverance are still necessary to succeed.

Today we recognize how these qualities are connected to the people we need to succeed. Our network (employees, customers, elected leaders, neighbors, peers) requires our stewardship, care, planning, effort, and perseverance, along with a bit of luck. 

One aim of the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce is to assist our members in building their network by introducing members to new customers, elected leaders, and fellow business owners to share common bonds and celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit.

With over 100 years of experience, the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce works to support the membership and promote the City of Highland. 


The mission of the Highland Area Chamber of Commerce is to promote a positive economic and community climate and to facilitate business growth opportunities for our members.

It is the Chamber’s goal to remain constantly vigilant in allocating our resources towards activities and projects that strictly adhere to our Mission Statement and Core Values.  This way, we ensure that the Chamber is consistent in meeting the needs of our members and the Highland community.
