The spirit of collaboration is evident among the chambers that formed the West Michigan Chamber Coalition in the late 1990’s to promote regionalism, cooperation and a desire to improve the area’s business climate in this global economy.
The West Michigan Chamber Coalition consists of:
- Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce
- Michigan West Coast Chamber of Commerce
- Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce
- The Chamber - Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Ferrysburg
The four Chambers of Commerce represent a cross section of businesses with over 6,000 business members with over 265,000 employees. The western boundary is over 50 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline with a large urban center to the east.
The area represents approximately 1,950 square miles and a population of 1.1 million people. The shoreline coastal features sandy beaches, sand dunes and deep water ports and the urban center is the second largest city in Michigan.
