About Us

What is the Mission of the Arcata Chamber?

The Arcata Chamber of Commerce is a diverse, nonpolitical member organization serving the Arcata, Humboldt area, working as a catalyst to support business entrepreneurship, collaboration and innovation while promoting a strong sense of community.


Land Acknowledgment

The Arcata Chamber of Commerce would like to acknowledge that we are located on the unceded ancestral territory and present homeland of the Wiyot peoples, which includes the Wiyot Tribe, Bear River Rancheria, and Blue Lake Rancheria. Please join us in acknowledging this fact as we visit and enjoy the city of Arcata and its surrounding areas. We make this land acknowledgment in recognition that our words must be matched by action and approach.  Therefore, we encourage direct giving to Tribes and Native-led efforts in Humboldt County including Hupa, Karuk, Mattole, Tolowa, Wailaki, Wiyot, and Yurok, and we encourage those in Wiyot territory to make a contribution to the Wiyot Tribe honor tax.


Proud Equity Arcata Partner
The Arcata Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with Equity Arcata, which utilizes a collective impact model between the city of Arcata, Cal Poly Humboldt, local businesses, NPOs, and members of the community working to make Arcata a more inclusive and welcoming environment for people of color.

I have had two different people reach out to me regarding property management services by seeing your featured post about me and my business on Instagram.  Thank you for that! It reminds me of how proud and happy I am to be a part of the Chamber organization that helps out their members and community!
