There has been a Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce since November 15, 1892; however, it has been known as the Eddy Club, the Union Club, the Commercial Club and finally the Chamber of Commerce in 1928. Our Chamber was also designated a State of New Mexico Visitor Information Center in July 2009.
We have a long history with our local tourist attractions and businesses. In fact, the Chamber played a big role in President Calvin Coolidge’s Proclamation on October 25, 1923 which set aside the Carlsbad Cave National Monument and again in 1929 to change the designation to a National Park. The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce is a strong supporter of the potash industry, the Waste Isolation Pilot Project, and the oil and gas industry.
We’re located at 302 S. Canal Street --- where US Highways 62/180 and 285 meet; also known as the corner of Greene and Canal Streets. Our office hours are Monday from 9 am to 5 pm and Tuesday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. Our main entrance is on the south side of the building (near Wendy's). Please come see us!
