The Voice of Business in West Virginia

The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce works to represent and advance the interests of our members -- large and small.

Whether in the halls of the West Virginia Capitol, before governmental agencies or on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., the West Virginia Chamber strives to promote policies and laws that foster business investment and growth. We also work to defeat laws and regulations that might hinder our members' success.
