About The Hastings Chamber of Commerce

    For 50 years, the Hastings Chamber has been an organization of businesses who work together to advance the commercial, financial, industrial and civic interest of the community.  We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by Chamber members. 

    • The Hastings Chamber is a respected and influential leader and an advocate for the regional business community it serves.  Our work on community initiatives has also positioned the Chamber as a valued community assest.

    The Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau is not a division of city, county or state government.  It is not directed or governed by the U.S. Chamber, Minnesota Chamber, or any other organization.


    Our Mission: To lead, promote and advocate for the Hastings area business community
    to reinforce a strong local economy.


    A message from the Chamber Chair

    Our Chamber is in such a great position in our community!  So much so - it is cause for celebration.  This year, we will be marking the 50th Anniversary of the Chamber, and the 40th Anniversary of Rivertown Days.  These are exciting times - with MANY special plans and events being organized and brought to our membership and community!  As always, any feedback or ideas you may have as we commemorate these occasions is always appreciated.

    Our Chamber Board has worked hard to provide the programs and resources needed to lead, promote and advocate for the Hastings Area business community.  While using our three strategic objectives as a guide; we’ve increased membership, advocated for policies that promote a strong business environment and executed another successful Rivertown Days.  

    The next year also brings opportunity to implement some short term goals suggested through the Hastings Tourism Assessment Report. The report gave us fantastic feedback and insight. And - with the help of our community partners - a chance to develop a consistent action plan to bring maximum tourism impact to our community in the coming years. We are also creating a new shop local guide highlighting Chamber members, which will be printing and mailing to all of Hastings soon. Plus, we’re making some exciting changes for the 40th anniversary of Rivertown Days – so stay tuned!

    This is just a sample of the work being done and started on from our Chamber staff, Board members, committees and volunteers!  If you would like to help and join our efforts, please reach out to our office or myself anytime.
