Our History

The Mobile Chamber was incorporated under the name Mobile Commerce and Business League in 1836.

The Mobile organization was the first in the state, chartered by the Alabama Legislature in 1854. The Chamber has changed its names on several occasions. It has been known as the Mobile Board of Trade, the Mobile Chamber of Commerce and Maritime Exchange and Shipping Association, and the Mobile Chamber of Commerce and Business League. In 1960, the organization was reincorporated under the name, Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce. It’s known locally today as the Mobile Chamber.

The Mobile Chamber is one of the nation’s oldest continuously accredited Chamber and received its 25-year accreditation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1992.
