About Us

Your membership in the Corona Chamber of Commerce could be one of the smartest business decisions you've ever made. You will find that the return on your dues investment is tremendous. In the short-term, in the form of business referrals and networking opportunities, to the long-term, in the form of advocacy and business-friendly legislation, your Corona Chamber provides exceptional benefits.

Catalyst.

We’re not ok with just keeping the status quo—we’re working to be a step ahead, to provide the best opportunities for CORONA. We’re currently working on bringing photonics to the region. It’s the study of lights and fibers, and while it’s much more complicated than that simple explanation, it means high paying jobs and a new industry. There is no one doing this within a thousand mile radius of here. This is just one example of how we’re moving Corona forward.

Convener.

No one can gather more of the brightest and most influential people than a chamber of commerce. Whether you’re a young entrepreneur or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, our programming attracts the best, because they know together we are stronger. We're not just talking events either. Those are great, but we're talking true impact, and that includes our advocacy outreach, providing influence over issues that directly impact your business.

Champion.

No one loves this city more than we do. Whether you’re talking to a member of our team or a Board of Director, it’s clear that the passion for Corona is there, and we won’t stop until every business is thriving, no resident could ever imagine moving, and this city is the best it can be for generations to come. Working together with the City of Corona, County of Riverside, neighboring cities and the community, we're building great things here, for a sustainable future.
