Past Presidents

In 1989, a group of local business owners and community leaders formed The Biloxi Bay Business Council to represent the city’s business community.

The Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce was officially chartered in 1993.  The group chose the name Biloxi Bay to embrace the body of water that touches our coastal shores, just as our membership encompasses the coastal region.

On July 1, 2016, the Chamber changed its name to The Biloxi Bay Area Chamber of Commerce.
