Coalinga Chamber of Commerce

We love Coalinga. In this isolated location, it is important to support each other in our business endeavors. We thank our members for believing in our mission. Coalinga Chamber was established 106 years ago when Coalinga was busting at the seams with potential. Things have changed, but we believe that it is still time to thrive.

Scott Netherton

New Leadership

Our New Executive Director
Coalinga Chamber of Commerce is currently under new leadership. Scott Netherton, local businessman, is a life-long resident of Coalinga and loves this town.
After a year of Covid-19 pandemic challenges, Netherton hopes to bolster fellow business owners through Coalinga's Chamber of Commerce as they continue to overcome many obstacles.
A Word From Our Director
Hello fellow business owners. I would like to introduce myself. I am Scott Netherton and I am the owner of Reel Time Entertainment, the Movie Cinema here in Coalinga. I am also very proud to have recently been selected to be the new Executive Director for your Coalinga Area Chamber of Commerce.
Being a business owner myself, I understand how devastating 2020 and this pandemic has and continues to be for almost all our local businesses. At the Chamber, we are dedicated to being Champions for our business partners.
We want you to know that we are here to support, promote and assist any way possible to ensure that our members have access to the information and assistance needed to once again become the leaders and driving force behind this community.
We are currently working on a membership drive and recreating a list of all past, present and hopefully future Chamber Partners.
If you are uncertain exactly what the Chamber of Commerce is about, I hope you will take a moment and read about how becoming a member can not only benefit your business, but also the Community.
Understanding the financial hardship you have been through, we have reduced our membership rate for the balance of 2021 to hopefully be at a price that is affordable and enables your business to become a member.
As a Chamber Partner, we become a team, committed to the success of our local businesses and to providing incredible events and activities for the people and community we serve.
I am honored to be the new Director, and I sincerely hope that you will consider becoming a proud member of the Coalinga Chamber of Commerce.
We are the heartbeat of Coalinga. And our beat has never been stronger.

Our logo represents a pioneering spirit with the feisty critter, the horned toad who scraps out a living by hunting black ants. This lizard, a native of the area, is the high school mascot as well, and races are held each year, using the mighty toad.
The three knots along the edge represent vision, leadership and opportunity; the three tenets of our organization. 

Together we are strong!
