The Hoover Chamber of Commerce
The Hoover Chamber provides networking opportunities for our members to meet other business people in the Chamber. We encourage our members to conduct business with other members. We constantly strive to promote our members to the public, Hoover-area communities, residents, visitors, other businesses and government agencies. The fledgling 10-year-old city of Hoover formed to begin the chamber with the blessings of the new city's founding fathers.
The first month, fifty members were recruited as charter members of the Hoover Chamber. Most were located in what is known as the Barbizon Building on Lorna Road in Hoover, and the newsletters were written, copied, and hand delivered by Jean McCurdy, the Chamber's original manager/secretary.
Since that time, the Chamber has grown to over 1,200 members throughout Hoover and surrounding areas of Jefferson and Shelby Counties. Of course, in that time, the city's population has grown from 410 original residents in 1967 to almost 75,000 today.
