The Livonia-Westland Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that represents more than 1,200 members, promotes Livonia and Westland, and supports the whole business community.
The Livonia-Westland Chamber of Commerce was formed in the Fall 2023, when the Livonia Chamber of Commerce, founded in 1950, and the Westland Chamber of Commerce, founded in 1962, decided to strategically align the two organizations.
The Chamber has provided leadership with its initiatives to promote careers in the skilled and technical trades, collaboration among political and business leaders across western Wayne County, and engage with ethnic business communities to attract economic development opportunities from foreign companies.
Businesses and organizations gain credibility, referrals, and advocacy through its engagement with the Livonia-Westland Chamber. Local consumers are more likely to do business with companies that belong to their local chambers because they view such companies as more credible, according to national studies.
The Chamber coordinates dozens of networking, professional development, and business promotion events each year; as well as high-profile speaker events with neighboring chambers.
The Chamber periodically takes positions and provides concise policy analysis on relevant local business issues, such as signage, tax-incentive programs, and state and local referendums. The Chamber also conducts candidate forums featuring those running for local offices, and regularly interacts with local, county and state policy makers. The Chamber does not endorse candidates or operate a political-action committee.
