About the Chamber

The Evergreen Park Chamber of Commerce has promoted a thriving business environment in our community since 1947. We foster cooperation and opportunity among local businesses, consumers, and government.

What we do

The Chamber sponsors educational workshops, networking opportunities, and social events for its member businesses. These include luncheons, golf outings, and seminars on relevant business topics. These Chamber programs can be invaluable opportunities for business members to build relationships, share information, and send referrals to one another.

We also promote the products and services of our business members to the public. Our website includes a detailed directory of member businesses, including news and announcements about new businesses opening in the community. We also print a detailed Membership Directory and Buyers Guide that is sent to 7,000 households in Evergreen Park.

Officers and Directors on the Evergreen Park Chamber of Commerce Board hold monthly meetings to conduct Chamber business, plan events, and share news.  The EPCC Board of Directors Monthly Meeting is usually held on the first Tuesday of the month at 8:30 am in the Evergreen Park Public Library, 9400 S. Troy Ave.
