NOTE: The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce took immediate action to pivot all of our services in response to COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to offer all services in virtual formats, and continue to develop new programs to meet the needs of our morphing community.  We are riding this wave together, and our mission remains the same as it has for nearly 100 years. “The Carlsbad Chamber promotes business through member services, economic and community development, and public policy that balances economic prosperity with quality of life.”
