  2. Trends and Outlook

  3. The History of Chambers

  4. In the United States, early chambers promoted the sale of goods, organized markets, • made and enforced rules of trade, protected goods in transit, and even operated their • own trading floors.  But their activities were limited to those directly connected with • commerce.

  5. The first known use of the term “chamber of commerce” occurred in Marseilles, • France, where such an organization was established by the city council toward the • close of the 17th century.  From this beginning, chambers of commerce spread to • Germany and then throughout Europe.

  6. Global Trade 1650-1860

  7. The oldest chamber of commerce on the American continent is that of the State of • New York, chartered by King George III, in 1770. The establishment of the New York • Chamber was a direct result of the Stamp Act that was passed by Parliament in 1765.

  8. The first local chamber of commerce was founded in Charleston, South • Carolina in 1773.  By 1870, the number of local chambers had increased • to 40. This growth lead to the type of chambers know today.
