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.
