The Dayton Chamber began in 1954 by a group of businessmen who wanted to find a way to promote each other. At that time, the Dayton Chamber was only open to businessmen. It was a small organization and catered only to the Dayton area.

How times have changed!

The Dayton Chamber is now an organization that has both men and women business owners as well as business members from not only outside Dayton but outside the county! Technology has to be the biggest change over the years. We now have the ability to promote our members nationwide and worldwide with the Internet.
