Our mission is to improve metro Milwaukee
as a place to invest capital, grow business
and create jobs.
For more than 150 years, the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) has been serving area businesses as a private, not-for-profit organization. Today we represent approximately 1,800 member businesses with 300,000 employees in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties and beyond.
Driven by the needs of our members, we are committed to increasing the economic vitality of the metro Milwaukee business community. The organization's programs and resources center around three core competencies. The MMAC is the region's best business network, bringing members together to develop business, share best practices and build stronger business relationships. We are the key private-sector partner for economic development, working to strengthen our business base and attract and retain jobs and the talent to fill them. And we serve as the region's advocate for member businesses at the local, state and federal levels.
