Economic Development

The Chamber addresses issues of concern to your business on local, county, state and federal levels. We take proactive measures to assure that our governĀ­ment officials understand your business objectives and viewpoints (regulation, taxation and business developĀ­ment support, to name a few). As a member of the Oakland Chamber Network, made up of over 28 chambers in Oakland County, we are a unified and collective voice for regional and statewide business advocacy.

The GFA Chamber has always participated in shaping the united effort of many businesses to enhance local business opportunity, promote economic growth and quality of life in the Greater Farmington Area. Our strong relationships with City of Farmington Hills, City of Farmington, Farmington Downtown Development Authority and Farmington Hills Economic Development Corporation, allow us to collectively foster and enhance our area's economic fabric.
