WELCOME FROM THE CHAMBER PRESIDENT The Grayslake Chamber of Commerce extends a warm welcome to everyone. The Chamber, founded in 1950, continues to be a driving force throughout the community. Whereas most chambersâ€™ sole focus is on business growth and development, the Grayslake Chamber, in addition, is the premier civic organization in town, sponsoring various events such as the Craft Beer Fest, Arts Festival, 5K Fun Run, Business Trick-or-Treating, the Annual Tree Lighting ceremony, and of course, Summer Days. Not only is this good for our businesses, but it also spreads goodwill and fosters a communityâ€™s spirit unlike any in Lake County. The Chamber of Commerce provides its members with many benefits and business services. These include joint advertising programs, sponsorships, newsletters, customer referrals, informational
membership meetings, seminars targeted to specific needs of the business owner and many opportunities to network and make new contacts and relationships. The Chamber is also very active in local, state and federal issues regarding business. The Grayslake Chamber continues to grow and prosper, with membership of more than 210. The Chamber enjoys excellent working relationships with the village, economic development commission, park district, township and schools. We all work together for the betterment of the community.
