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 the Chamber for a variety of reasons. Some want to expand their market of customers and suppliers. We offer several periodic meetings that encourage networking for just that purpose:

 

Network Lunch

Women in Business

Small Business Breakfast Club

Business After Hours

Pancakes and Policy

 

The Chamber also boasts one of the most powerful business directories in northeast Georgia – AthensGaHasIt.com. This is an interactive directory that places our members into several categories of popular interests. All of our members are included on the site as part of their membership, though we do offer advertising opportunities for those who wish to be more predominantly featured.

 

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, GA 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.
