Focused on Forward
2015 was a year of transformative change for our organization and for the entire nine-parish One Acadiana region. Our chamber of commerce – and our community – will never be the same.
In early 2015, The Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors set out to build an organization that could energetically advance its long-standing, ambitious mission: to be the leading force in the improvement of the business environment and the economic health and development of the region. Since then, our board and staff have been working diligently to transform our organization from a mostly traditional chamber of commerce into a highly professional and proactive, nationally competitive regional economic development organization: One Acadiana.
One Acadiana also serves as the central business organization for Lafayette Parish, providing leadership on local issues as well as the services and resources of a traditional chamber of commerce.
When businesses get involved with One Acadiana, they’re pledging their commitment to the growth and development of the entire region – and stand to benefit greatly through exposure, connection, knowledge, and resources. Membership provides organizations insight into the Lafayette and Acadiana business community and facilitates active involvement with the community, other businesses, vendors, and your customers.
