Board and Staff

The Monroe Chamber of Commerce was established over 120 years ago to serve the needs of the business community. We help new businesses open and we help existing businesses expand and grow. Our goal is to strengthen our workforce, build our infrastructure and improve the overall business environment. We know that you will discover what we already know. Ouachita Parish is a great place to live, work and raise your family.
