How Your Chamber Works For You


The Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce works with our membership and community to promote, enhance, and encourage initiatives that will benefit our community and local businesses.

Being a Chamber member gives your business credibility.  The Chamber strives to stand up for the local community and its economy.  When your business is associated with the Chamber of Commerce, it gives the perception that you stand for these things, too.  As a result, consumers trust you more.  With more trust comes a more positive impression of your business and what you have to offer to the community.

The best way to spread the word about your business is by making connections.  Whether you are a new business or a veteran looking to enhance your business’ contribution to the community, your reputation grows as you engage with other entities.  The Chamber provides numerous networking opportunities to connect with other businesses as well as people.

Gaining exposure for your business can be challenging, especially if you are a new business.  By becoming a member of the Chamber of Commerce, you gain resources that will make exposure much easier.  Members are listed in the digital directory on our website and included in our business spotlights.  

The Chamber of Commerce serves as more than just a marketing tool for businesses.  The Chamber also serves as a voice for the local business owners and industries.  As a member, you become a part of that influence.  Your role in the Chamber is relevant, and your opinion becomes part of the many contributed voices that form the Chamber’s views.

The Chamber is a community within itself.  The Chamber of Commerce brings its members together not only to benefit the community but also to benefit each other.  Part of the Chamber’s job is linking businesses and individuals to the resources they are seeking.  As a member of the Chamber, you and your business become part of our organization’s resources.  When a need arises that your business can help with, your Chamber will refer you as a possible solution.  Recommendations always start with the Chamber’s memberships. 

As a member, you support the Chamber’s daily operation.  Part of the Chamber’s operation is to make running a business easier for its members.  Not only does the Chamber offer networking opportunities but we also offer ways for you to serve and make a difference in your community.  The Chamber encourages you to engage in your community and make a difference while promoting your business at the same time.
