The Chamber

Get to Know us

 The Hot Springs Village Area Chamber of Commerce is an advocacy group of local members who together promote the best interests of local businesses and our communities. The Chamber’s trade area encompasses the adventure-driven Ouachita region of Central Arkansas. In the heart of this region lies the master-planned community of Hot Springs Village, spanning 26,000 acres from Highway 5 at Lonsdale to scenic Highway 7 at the base of Ouachita National Forest. The Hot Springs Village Area includes surrounding communities of Jessieville, Fountain Lake, Mountain Pine, and Owensville. 


Our motivated Board of Directors, Ambassadors, and staff will be your key information sources  to the community. We are here to help promote the local economy, improve quality of life, and to serve as catalysts for long-term progress in Garland and Saline Counties.
