Downingtown-Thorndale Regional

Chamber of Commerce Board & Committees


The Downingtown Area Chamber of Commerce was established in 1945 and incorporated in 1947, and has met the changing needs of the Downingtown community.

In 2011 our name was changed to the Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce.  Our Board of Directors expanded our service area to include the Thorndale community.

Our most valuable asset is our members who become involved and work towards our common goals.  Our membership of approximately 120 consists of business owners, professionals, industrial companies, residents, and organizations interested in supporting the activities and ideals of our community.

The governing body of the Chamber is the Board of Directors.  The Chamber accomplishes its goals and objectives through volunteer members who serve on committees and an Executive Director.  The Board of Directors meet the second Tuesday of every month and the General Membership meeting is held the third Tuesday of every month.
