What is the Chamber of  Commerce?  

A Chamber of Commerce is a coalition of area businesses, industries, organizations, and professionals who pool their talents and resources to improve the economic, civic, and cultural climate of their community. Businesses, organizations, and individuals are eligible to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. Dues are structured so it is affordable for all. The Chamber is an advocate and service organization for business. It provides a venue through which business professionals can take effective action for the progress and growth of their community.

Why should you become a member of your Chamber of Commerce?

  • As a Chamber member, you become part of an organization with a strong, credible voice that speaks out on behalf of business and industry.
  • A Chamber membership allows you to shape your community by participating in projects and special task groups that apply business-oriented solutions to community concerns.
  • As a Chamber member, you have access to one of the most efficient, effective networking systems available to promote your business and expand your customer base.
  • The Chamber of Commerce works tirelessly to promote members, and can provide you with resources and referrals to grow your business.
  • A Chamber membership can boost your community image and increase your sales. A recent national survey found that consumers are 63% more likely to buy from Chamber members.

The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce began the new year with a new director of chamber services and a new office. The chamber’s board of directors named Tonya Powers as the new director of chamber services in December. In a dual role, Powers also serves as the Executive Secretary of the Franklin County Industrial Building Authority (IBA). For the past five years, Powers was employed as the sales and marketing director for Cateechee Golf Club in Hartwell. She is currently majoring in business at Piedmont College and earned a degree in marketing from North Georgia Technical College.
