Mission Statement of the Kernville Chamber of Commerce
“To serve and support its members; to attract visitors, new residents and job creating businesses to the area; to pursue valley wide economic development; and to manage and improve the various community properties entrusted to its care.”
The areas of focus of the Kernville Chamber of Commerce will be to promote tourism and events. Help in business retention/attraction, relocation services, economic development, location filming, and the cooperative marketing of the Kern River Valley’s numerous assets. A prime consideration in those efforts will be the preservation of historical values and properties that are unique to the Kern River Valley.
Our General Membership Meeting are held at 3:00pm on the 4th Monday of every month except May and December. The public is always invited and we encourage you to come out and meet the Board, ask questions, get involved, and learn what your Chamber can do for you and your business.
