AB Construction is proud to join the City of Lafayette Chamber of Commerce! It’s even better than getting a key to the city – it’s helping make the keys to the city and giving them out to the deserving, hard-working community businesses and organizations.
We were officially welcomed to the organization on March 9th, 2015.
Here’s a little more about the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce:
The Chamber is a volunteer based organization serving the interests of the business community and with an ongoing commitment to the City of Lafayette.
In 1947 a group of concerned business persons launched the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce.
The stated mission of the organization was:
“To promote and maintain a healthy business climate and to
preserve and enhance the quality of life in Lafayette.”
A half century later, the Chamber has grown to include more than 600 businesses and professionals in Lafayette and neighboring areas. It remains the principal advocate for the business community, working to promote businesses in town and encouraging new enterprises to locate here.
All aspects that make up a community are important: schools, residents, churches and synagogues, community organizations and activities, and the city government. Chamber members work with representatives of all these groups for the betterment of the community.
Annual Chamber events include the Taste of Lafayette, the Lafayette Reservoir Run and the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival.
Proceeds from Chamber events are often shared with deserving nonprofit organizations in the community.
