We are a team of business and community leaders who are your advocates for a bright future on the South Side.

 

The South Side Chamber of Commerce is a community-based organization which represents the diverse interests of interconnected businesses, residents and other stakeholders in the South Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Its primary mission is to cultivate common vision, unity and business growth through member involvement in the community at large. The Chamber actively promotes the community’s proud past, dynamic present and shared future through its ongoing community initiatives. The Chamber works as part of the common coalition which champions the East Carson Street historic business district and flats and slopes neighborhoods as it attracts and serves those who operate businesses here and those who live, work and enjoy the South Side.
