The Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama (CCAA) consists of Chambers of Commerce, their executives and staff, and the members of business and community organizations that directly serve chamber of commerce work in the State of Alabama
The CCAA has a long tenure as the preeminent organization serving Chamber of Commerce professionals, and the Chambers of Commerce they represent, in the State of Alabama. The organization exists to strengthen the vital role local Chambers of Commerce play in economic and community development.
In addition, it provides members with exceptional services in the areas of advocacy, professional development, and communication of issues that affect the local business community. The CCAA additionally serves as a clearinghouse for business-related information, peer-to-peer networking opportunities and other contacts which serve the needs of local Chamber of Commerce professionals.
In 2003, the grassroots efforts of the CCAA were strengthened when the Partnership was formed between the CCAA and Business Council of Alabama (BCA).
The BCA/CCAA Partnership is the first of its kind in the United States and has become a model for other states. Together, the groups represent the interests and concerns of over one million working Alabamians.
