2014 Local’s Choice of the Year Award for Customer Service in Contra Costa goes to one of Local Happenings favorite places, the Danville Chamber of Commerce.

The Danville Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1948 to serve the business communities of Alamo, Blackhawk, Danville, Diablo and, originally, San Ramon. Today, San Ramon has its own Chamber but the cooperative spirit is still evident.

Their Mission statement shows why they are number one in customer service: “Our mission is to enhance the growth and development of business and the quality of life in our community, by helping to keep our membership informed, connected and prosperous.”

The Chamber is comprised of 4 professional staff, a Board of Directors comprised of 15 business representatives and approximately 700 business, nonprofit and service organizations. They are here to serve their members through education, promotion and advocacy. The Danville Chamber has a myriad of business events including monthly mixers, seminars, business-by-referral leads groups and special annual networking events.

This organization prides itself on being fun, energetic and welcoming to all. Each year, for the benefit and enjoyment of the entire community, the Chamber sponsors and organizes two annual Arts and Crafts Fairs, and the annual Holiday Tree Lighting.  These events offer opportunities for the residents and business community to work together to foster and promote a cooperative community spirit.
