The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce is organized to promote and advance economic enrichment and development, tourism, and the social and civic interest of Shelby County and adjoining areas.
What is a Chamber of Commerce?
A Chamber of Commerce is primarily an organization of men and women who have joined together to work for the solution of their mutual business and community problems. In our community, as in any area, there are problems and opportunities which one individual, alone, cannot possibly solve. By working with others - pooling time and resources - important accomplishments can be made. In any community, progress takes place because a group of dedicated people are making things happen.
The Chamber of Commerce is the logical organization to motivate, organize and direct this effort. The Chamber of Commerce has concern for the economic well-being of our community, works to preserve our business system, promotes business growth and development, and enhances the quality of life.
Your Chamber is NOT part of the city, county, or state government; a political party of faction; a civic or social club; nor a social service or welfare agency.
In brief, the Chamber of Commerce is an organization through which the volunteer manpower of our community works effectively to make the community a better place in which to work and live. The Chamber of Commerce is a dynamic, living process because its people work for the betterment of their community.
