What our Members are Saying about the Vista Chamber…..
The Vista Chamber of Commerce has been tremendously helpful and beneficial to our local business. Their personable staff made it easy for us to utilize their many resources to promote our business and contribute back to the community. I’ve dealt with many different chambers in my career and our own Vista’s is by far my favorite to work with!

Our business moved from Carlsbad to Vista last October. We joined the Vista Chamber of Commerce but were admittedly reluctant because the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce did not benefit our business in the least. We were quickly more than pleasantly surprised how different the Vista Chamber of Commerce was! Almost immediately, Nick, the Director of Sales, paid us a visit to discuss how they could help our business. Right away we felt like the Vista Chamber was genuinely interested in seeing our business succeed. They even hold “Chamber Orientation” so that you can learn all of the many ways that being a member is beneficial to your business. Since then, they showed us their support by ordering close to 2,000 T-shirts from us for one of their biggest events of the year The Vista Strawberry Festival and Vista 5000K Race. From day one Nick, Brett, and all of the Vista Chamber Staff have made us feel welcome in our new home of Vista, CA. There is not a week that goes by where I do not hear “Nick from the Chamber recommended you guys”. We are grateful for both the business relationship and friendship that the Vista Chamber of Commerce family has proven to show us.
Of all business groups to be a part of, the Vista Chamber is one of the best. It’s given us great exposure in the Vista community. More importantly they have been strong advocates in dealings with the City for issues that affect our business.

I have been involved with the Vista Chamber for about 4 years now and couldn’t imagine my life without it. I have been truly blessed to have developed so many great business connections and friendships. I can attribute one third of my business last year to either a direct relationship I have made through the chamber or as a result of a connection I have made from somebody within the Vista Chamber! The willingness of the staff to help their members grow in their business endeavors is impeccable!
Being involved with the Vista Chamber of Commerce enables our University to stay more tightly connected with the community and align our activities to better support the businesses and organizations of Vista.

I am involved in the Vista Chamber to meet the movers and shakers of our community. It is important to make sure our City and elected officials have our residence best interest in mind. I believe we must give back our knowledge, experience, integrity to our community by connecting resources, training and direct contacts of other merchants to our small business owners in North County. I feel our Vista Chamber is highly respected and a visible entity to help promote my business to other fellow members and generate income to keep our tax dollars in Vista.
My membership with the Chamber has opened doors to meet and work with many wonderful business and community leaders throughout North County. This rewarding experience has cultivated my growth, both personally and as a business owner. My membership has also helped me to see what a great community we are a part of and how we can help make it even better.

I am a member of the chamber because it is a vital organization to help build bridges between the business community and its governing bodies. The chamber is an advocate for fair and equitable business practices and regulations that promote a healthy economy. The chamber is also a fantastic resource for my company and is constantly helping us get the word out about important energy trends, energy efficiency programs and projects of interest to the local community.
