Chamber of Commerce


The Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer-driven professional organization committed to promoting and supporting its member businesses and the surrounding community. We strive to bring information and resources for more visibility and sustainability to our business community!

To accomplish our mission, we:

  • Create unique networking and strategic partnering opportunities.
  • Develop services, programs, and events. 
  • Proactively market our member businesses throughout the Lake Forest community.
  • Offer opportunities for growth to help support the member business. 

A Brief History

On November 10, 2008, after months of surveys, interviews, and research The Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce formed a committee.  We had been in existence dating back to the early eighties as an affiliate chamber of the South Orange County Regional Chambers of Commerce (SOCRCC), but we took advantage of an opportunity for Lake Forest businesses to explore the potential of forming a completely independent Chamber of Commerce resulting in our incorporation. We launched on April 5th, 2010! 

Since then we have grown and prospered.

Fortunately, the City of Lake Forest and Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce have had a long history of helping local businesses prosper. Those involved with the affiliate Lake Forest Chamber believed an independently-run, local chamber offered more opportunity to meet the potential needs of the Lake Forest business community.

For over ten years we have operated as a totally volunteer organization.  The Board of Director's has been encouraged by its forward momentum, growth and progress.   We have taken full advantage of the fact that are not tied down by any traditions and with an open mind we set out re-thinking what a chamber can and should be.   Please take a moment to go through this website and/or talk to one of our Corporate Board Members. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised with what the Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce can do for you!
