Lompoc Valley Chamber – Our Story

Established in 1903, the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau has been an integral part of shaping the history and development of our community. Steeped in a rich legacy, our forefathers demonstrated remarkable foresight in an era when Chambers of Commerce primarily focused on retail sales. Recognizing the interconnectedness of business success and community well-being, our founders understood that prosperity would flourish only when businesses and the community worked hand in hand.

In a visionary move, the collaborators who laid the foundation for our Chamber realized the need to develop facilities that would make Lompoc the ideal place to live. This forward-thinking approach laid the groundwork for our enduring commitment to community development.

In a pivotal moment during the February 1998 Board of Directors meeting, the organization underwent a significant transformation. To better reflect the evolving nature of business and to embrace new economic opportunities, the name was changed to the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau. This change not only acknowledged the vital role of visitors in our community but also opened doors to innovative visitor-related programs, enhancing economic prospects for all.

Today, the guiding philosophy established by our forefathers remains the bedrock of our organization. The Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau actively engages with the community in numerous ways. From job creation and support for economic development to nurturing education, the arts, and leadership programs, we continue to be a driving force for positive change.

As we celebrate over a century of service, our commitment to collaborative progress stands unwavering. Join us in our mission to make Lompoc the ideal place to live, work, and visit, as we build upon a legacy of community prosperity that began in 1903
