Founded over 50 years ago, our Chamber is a highly proactive and visible influence in Cherokee County. While the majority of our member businesses have ten or less employees, the Chamber provides a forum for businesses of all sizes and types. The mission of the Chamber is to promote business and the community while expanding the economy and enhancing the quality of life. The Chamber’s vision is to be the premier comprehensive resource for the Cherokee County business community.
We are an active, viable organization serving more than 1,060 members through professional and personal development opportunities while promoting a strong, vigorous economic climate in Cherokee County. Not only do we create an atmosphere for new business growth in our county, we also strive to ensure our existing businesses thrive and newcomers and visitors recognize what Cherokee County has to offer.
The staff provides many services and resources — some of these are available to the public, others to Chamber members. Business and community leaders volunteer hundreds of hours each year, reviewing challenges, seeking solutions and exploring new ideas together — to make Cherokee County a progressive, prosperous and eminently livable community. Our organization elects a Board of Directors to oversee the Chamber and its initiatives. The Directors then elect a Board Chair who continues to steer the organization along the pathway to success. Since the Chamber’s inception in 1970, the roster of Past Chairs has continued to include Cherokee County’s best of the best.
The Chamber and its staff is also actively involved with organizations such as the Georgia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, Georgia Chamber of Commerce, and the US Chamber of Commerce. Each of these professional entities provide support to Chambers and businesses alike.
