About The Hastings Chamber of Commerce

    The Chamber of Commerce exists to be 

    The Catalyst for business growth, 
    The Convener for leaders and influencers, 
    And the Champion for stronger communities.







    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 asset. 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.
