There are more than 3,000 chambers of commerce operating at the local, regional, state and national level through the United States. Each of these organizations is incorporated and operated separately, rather than as a chapter or franchise of some larger network of organizations. While the San Gabriel Chamber may partner with local chambers throughout the area on various issues, and may maintain membership in the State and U.S. Chamber, the San Gabriel Chamber is not tied to or a subsidiary of any of those organizations. Any connection the San Gabriel Chamber has to other chambers is one of voluntary affiliation or membership, and does not extend to control or governance.
