The Chamber

Get to Know us

 The Hot Springs Village Area Chamber of Commerce is an advocacy group of local members joining together to promote the best interests of local businesses and community. 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 Arkansas’ scenic Highway 7 at the base of Ouachita National Forest. Surrounding communities of Jessieville, Fountain Lake, Mountain Pine and Owensville create close knit, friendly living in the Natural State. 


Our vibrant Board of Directors, Ambassadors, and staff will be your key connections to the community. We are here to help cultivate the local economy, improve quality of life, and to serve as a catalyst for long-term progress in Garland and Saline Counties.
