The San Carlos Chamber of Commerce is an association of businesses combining their efforts to ensure the economic vitality of the community. The Chamber works continuously with new and existing businesses to help them succeed. It works closely with the City of San Carlos to make sure that San Carlos is a quality place in which to live and do business. Its focus is Economic Development and it is a founding member of the Economic Development Partnership, a group of associations working to better the business climate in San Carlos. In addition to the activities carried on by its directors and committee members, the Chamber is ‘Information Central’ for visitors, new residents, potential businesses and the community. The office provides a wealth of information on San Carlos, its amenities and the surrounding area.


Our focus is five-fold:

  • To promote our member businesses, their products and services, via our online Business Directory 24/7; through our printed San Carlos Community and Business Directory; with our monthly newsletter, San Carlos Business, and by personal contact
  • To assist local businesses as needed for their success through seminars, workshops and counseling as well as offering free business counseling in our office through the services of SCORE (the Service Corps of Retired Executives – part of the Small Business Administration)
  • To provide networking opportunities for local and regional businesses to meet, exchange ideas and foster new business relationship
  • To work with our business partners to influence legal and political issues that impact the business community
  • To serve as the information and visitor center for San Carlos
