What is the Chamber?
The Chamber is a voluntary, non-profit organization of the business community. The Chamber is not a civic club, charitable organization, or department of the government. It unites hundreds of businesses and professional firms, thus creating a unique central agency working to improve business and build a better community.
We are the business advocate representing the Crisp County business community before the city, county, state, and federal agencies on issues such as taxation, zoning, and controlled growth.
We are business builders providing information and seminars on the latest technologies and practices for running a successful small business.
Bottom line…The Chamber is PEOPLE just like you. People who realize that through the Chamber of Commerce they can accomplish collectively what no one of them can do individually. The strength of the Chamber lies in attracting the greatest number of members, creating a pool of resources drawing ideas, energy, and finances.
