While the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce serves the public purpose of helping to provide people with jobs and a solid economic base, it also stands as a bulwark in defense of the free enterprise system and provides members with tangible benefits that will add to the profitability of the enterprises. 

All area businesses and professional practices should support the Chamber Movement by becoming a member of the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber program also creates bottom-line benefits to the member that should outweigh the member’s financial support.  Personal involvement in the various Chamber projects and activities is of further benefit to the member.
