The 120th Annual Meeting encouraged Chamber members and guests to Dream Courageously about their vision for a bright future for Athens. Congratulations to the award recipients:


"My business and I have been a proud member of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce for 40 years.  I have gotten some business that I would have probably never gotten if it was not for the Chamber.  As a black female-owned business downtown and UGA alumni, I could not ask for a better place to be. I only wish that every small business owner could experience the care that my Chamber gives to me!

-Quittis Smith-Luna, President & CEO, Northeast Georgia Temporary Services


“The Chamber does a great job of connecting people so businesses like ours are more aware of opportunities within the city to connect and serve. I cannot think of another organization that represents our community as a whole and speaks closer to the Athens vernacular.”

-Terrapin Beer Co.

“The Athens Chamber of Commerce has been an invaluable resource in creating a stronger community. With weekly networking opportunities and fantastic events, they offer fun ways for everyone to stay connected. They strive to understand common needs and continuously innovate until they can provide a solution.”

-Chad Brown, Brown & McCook


Not only is it FUN being a member, but we’ve also seen the impact in working with others in our area who share the same passion for our community and making it such a great place. The Chamber is the perfect connectivity between industry, education, non-profit, and so many other wonderful organizations that serve the Athens community.”

-Will BeasleyPrimrose School of Athens

"Chamber membership has been the foundation of my business development over the past year. The relationships and opportunities that I’ve gained access to have been invaluable to my future."

-Zander Mason, Raymond James
