About Us

The Havre Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to creating a strong local economy. The Chamber of Commerce of Havre is an area Chamber for Hill County. The Chamber promotes the wellbeing of the business and professional community. Organized in 1909, the Chamber has a long history of serving its members and the community. Collectively we have over 1700 members, through businesses and their employees, individual and non-profit memberships. At the heart of the local economy and the backbone of the nation’s economy are local Chambers of Commerce; Chamber’s form the fabric of American communities through promoting and celebrating the uniqueness of their communities.


The work of the Havre Chamber is vital to the local economy. We provide programs and services to businesses large and small. We fight for pro-business legislation and form private and public partnerships. We provide leadership in civic affairs and help to attract new business and residents to the community. We advocate for business and are dedicated to the future of Havre.


The Havre Chamber is directly involved in the community to create the environment where people want to live, work, visit and do business. With the support of the Chamber, businesses and community can grow and prosper.


We provide materials and educational opportunities throughout the year. We have over 300 business members working for a stronger local economy and an even higher quality of life. The membership represents a wide variety of businesses; from home based, to single proprietor, to agricultural producers to the area’s largest employer. The networking opportunities provided by the Chamber, through events,  seminars and the work of our committees, gives members a chance to interact with other business professionals and exchange ideas and referrals.
