The Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce's mission is to work every day to make our community a place where businesses can grow and prosper and where people want to raise their families. As the voice of business since 1917, we envision New Mexicans living in safe neighborhoods, working in rewarding careers at thriving businesses, while their children attend great schools, and enjoy their leisure time in one of the most beautiful regions on Earth.
A place becomes a world class community for many reasons, but most notably, it is because it has a world class education system, a vibrant small business community, a modern and efficient transportation network, excellent healthcare for all, a sustainable environment, a reliable source of power and water, and is an exciting place for tourism.
World class communities are great places for families and desirable places for business to locate and expand.
