The Oroville Chamber of Commerce and our mission is to promote and grow business while enhancing the community.
We promote tourism to our area with our events and social media coverage of activities. We also host the annual Fireworks Display at Deep Bay Park each July, welcoming visitors to the Oroville area..
As a Chamber, we are quite proactive in representing our Chamber Members throughout the state.
The Oroville Chamber of Commerce works hard to offer a multitude of benefits to our members to help them grow their businesses and promote their organizations. Just a few of these benefits include:
Job postings on our social media
Business features on our Facebook page
Enhanced membership directory listings
Discounts with Office Depot
Member Promotions on our website
We sponsor and support:
Civic events to attract customers to local businesses, assist new business prospects and new businesses to establish themselves, promote cooperation with City, County and other regional and local governments, provide member business listings in advertising on the Internet and other local and regional brochures and publications.
The Office Depot program, free to Oroville Chamber of Commerce members, gives you access to the power of a $70 million group purchasing program, the result of which is a very aggressive pricing structure on items you use the most. This pricing program is specifically tailored by Office Depot to support Chambers of Commerce and their member companies. Hundreds of Chambers and thousands of their member companies participate.
Each time you participate in the Office Depot program, you get substantial savings and you help support the work the Oroville Chamber of Commerce does on your behalf. The program is also very convenient. When you find the Office Depot items you need, you can order them online through a dedicated gateway on the Office Depot website and receive next-day delivery, or you can use your Affinity Program Discount Card to buy discounted items at your nearest Office Depot store.This program is extended to you as one of our members – there is no obligation to enroll. Contact the Chamber to enroll.

Harry Scherling Scholarship: In 1977 Harry Sherling began giving the Oroville Chamber of Commerce money to be set aside, the interest of which was to be used to to fund an annual scholarship fund. Because interest rates on the gift money have been so low, the chamber has recently subsidized the amount from general funds. This year we plan on awarding $500 to a high school graduate from within the Oroville School District (home school graduates in the area can also apply).
Streetscape: The Streetscape Committee is a joint effort of the City of Oroville and the Oroville Chamber of Commerce. Our committee’s focus is to enrich the downtown core to make shopping and living in and around Oroville a pleasurable experience.
