A History Of Delivering The Capital

On June 20, 1938, the Washington, DC Chamber of Commerce was incorporated in the nation’s capital. Initially formed to provide services for African–American businesses in the city, the name of the organization was changed to the Negro Chamber of Commerce in 1946, to reflect the unique needs of black businesses.

In 1956 our leadership re-evaluated the needs of businesses in the city and re-established itself as the District of Columbia Chamber of Commerce. With the new name came a new direction, and the Chamber expanded its operations to address the needs of all businesses in the District of Columbia.

The DC Chamber has continued to uphold its commitment to delivering the capital to businesses and citizens. We provide invaluable tools to help businesses develop, and it leverages relationships with key contacts in the DC Council and the Federal government to improve the business climate and attract new businesses to the District.

My family and I have a trip planned there for the end of March. It was a gift for my 13 yr old daughter who loves American history. I'm really hoping we can still see and do some things, but can't reach anyone by phone to address some concerns. I'm hoping maybe someone at the Chamber can help with this. 😏
