About the Chamber

The Athens Area Chamber of Commerce has been providing support to the business community in Athens and surrounding areas since 1904. The Chamber has been an integral voice of the business community as the area has continued to expand. We seek to convene dreamers, celebrate community champions, and continue to catalyze an economy that expands for all Athenians.


Members join and renew their memberships with the Chamber for a variety of reasons. Some want to expand their market of customers and suppliers. For that, we offer several periodic events that encourage networking within the community, including Network Lunch, Women Who Work, Small Business Breakfast Club, Business After Hours, and Pancakes and Policy. Others are interested in increasing the visibility of their business with the Athens Chamber which can be done through our social media platforms, various programming events, becoming a Chamber Champion, and more. 


Others want to be a part of an organization that strives to craft a vision for a brighter tomorrow. The Chamber convenes throughout the year with several partner organizations in our community that all have a stake in the future prosperity of Athens to discuss how we can improve and encourage businesses and our community as a whole to thrive. We believe that the future of Athens is only limited to the expanse of our dreams.


There is no question that Athens, Georgia is recognized as a fun, diverse, and innovative destination that offers endless opportunities for success. The Athens Area Chamber of Commerce is incredibly proud to support and promote this community and our members. We welcome you to our community and hope you feel the same enthusiasm and pleasure living in or visiting Athens as we do in serving it.
