• Welcome to the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce!

    As the largest Chamber in the north metro area, representing over 700 businesses and organizations, we are very proud of our efforts to build and foster workforce, economic, and community development. Together we provide a positive and dynamic environment which in turn creates a quality community for businesses, families, and students.

  • Who We Are, What We Do....

    By definition, a chamber of commerce is “a local organization of businesses whose goal is to further the interests of businesses; to advocate on behalf of the business community.” Behind the definition, the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce is a foundation of passionate people working together to strengthen relationships and our shared community. We do that by facilitating programming and events to build connections; advocating on key legislative issues; and supporting leadership and business recovery efforts in order for you to build your business.


    If you are looking for an organization where hundreds of other business professionals want to support you and this community, then look no further! We’d be happy to connect with you and discuss your goals and how the MetroNorth Chamber can help you achieve them.

  • What's Your Big Career Idea?

    May 15 | 12 - 5 pm | National Sports Center - Indoor and Outdoor Exhibits

    We are very pleased to announce a unique and exciting immersive career exploration opportunity for students and the general public on Monday, May 15.

    In conjunction with Career Force and Anoka Technical College, we are co-hosting a ‘Big Ideas’ Mobile Learning Lab, which is a fully immersive virtual reality system to introduce a variety of career opportunities. In-demand jobs can be explored via a unique and interactive experience. All students in the north metro area are being invited to participate, and this will also be marketed to the public.

    When not in the simulator, participants will have the chance to talk to local employers about career options, summer jobs, internships, industry information, etc. This is where you come in! If you wish to participate, we have outdoor and indoor space available. We are especially seeking employers who will bring some sort of interactive experience to their booth/space. For instance, bring a piece of equipment for people to explore, or a truck or trailer. Show a demonstration of how to fix a piece of equipment. Or, as Norhart did at last year’s career fair, bring a log and a hammer and play Hammerschlagen – a great introduction to a career in construction! To apply, fill out this form and email to lori@metronorthchamber.org!



    New Leadership Series

    In 2023, the MetroNorth Chamber will be providing resources and programming on a different leadership-focused topic each month. The 1st Friday Sunrise speaker will speak on the identified topic and then follow up with a free one-hour Mastermind session later in the month (open to all MetroNorth members). Attend one or both! Other applicable resources will be featured in the weekly e-newsletter, social media, website, etc. We are excited to bring relevant leadership resources to you and your business.

    March's topic is "Living in Your Strengths" presented by Brandy Gilbert, Crisp & Green/Urban Air Adventure Park. Long-gone are the days of action plans on your weaknesses and opportunities. We need to embrace & action around what we are good at & how to benefit all.

    April's topic is Servant Leadership brought to you by Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures. 

    In February, Stefani Havel, Board of Directors Chair and DiSC Certified Trainer, taught us all about effective communication, using DiSC as our guide. Understanding personal behavioral styles can help you better communicate with family, friends, colleagues, clients, and even prospects. To learn more, visit the Leadership page on our website to find details and resources.


    Free Little Leadership Library Now Open

    The MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the grand opening of their Free Little Leadership Library. Modeled after the neighborhood Little Free Library, the chamber’s focus is to have a variety of leadership and business-related books, which will be available for anyone to stop by and take.

    The idea for a leadership library came out of a discussion at the launch of our new LEADER Committee. LEADER stands for Lead, Elevate, Accelerate, and Develop through Education and Resources. Their purpose is to provide employers with purposeful, powerful, and impactful leadership insights and tools. The leadership library is really a natural fit for that goal. Many thanks to Murphy Bros. for handcrafting the library.
