"The mission of the Arab Chamber of Commerce is to advance and promote the economic environment for business, and to advocate responsive government and quality education, while preserving the region's unique community characteristics."


We are committed to the economic advancement of businesses, both large and small, while promoting the region's unique community characteristics and an unmatched quality of life. With unique, locally owned shops, theater and live music venues, and outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, fishing and golf you will find everything you are looking for at home in Arab, Alabama.


For over half a century, the Arab Chamber of Commerce has brought Arab area businesses together to promote economic growth and prosperity. Founded by a small group of businessmen in 1965, the Chamber has grown to over 300 members and continues to unite businesses and individuals for the common purpose of improving the community in which we live and work.

We seek to link business and community by supporting business leaders and entrepreneurs, informing visitors and citizens about our members through dynamic publications and interactions, and serve as a hub for community events while providing the latest information about the entire Arab area.
