The Santa Ynez Chamber of Commerce was officially formed in December 2012 to promote and support the wide variety of business activities that can be found in the Township of Santa Ynez. Just as in 1882 when Santa Ynez was founded, the Township hosts businesses that serve both local residents and visitors. Even the Chamber’s Founders were surprised to learn that more than 100 businesses call Santa Ynez home, including restaurants, retail shops, professional services, accommodations and contractors. The Chamber is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors representing a broad cross-section of the business community. The primary goal of the Chamber is to continue to raise awareness of the local business community and all that is available in our hometown simply by working together and supporting each other.
