The Greater Huntington Park Area Chamber of Commerce primary focus is the concern with the business and commercial life of the city, and it works in partnership with city government in maintaining the economic health and prosperity of the business community.
The organization works on the creation of working relationships and partnerships with its members to promote the economic growth and development in the community.
Today’s Chamber of Commerce had several predecessors in the earlier years of the city’s history. Its lineage traces back to the first Huntington Park Improvement Association, founded in 1904 by the City Fathers who subsequently founded our first School District and Incorporated the City. The Improvement Association, after a little more than a year of existence was expanded into the Huntington Park Board of Trade. Later, when Pacific Boulevard began to develop into a commercial street, there was the Pacific Boulevard Association.
