About Us

On behalf of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and the citizens of Jefferson County, we would like to welcome you to our community. We are proud to offer you the best of Jefferson County. We are located in North East Tennessee just outside of Knoxville and forty-five minutes from the Great Smoky Mountains. We also have two beautiful lakes with two interstate systems. All of this makes Jefferson County a great place to live, work and raise a family.


In the early 1980’s, a group of visionary leaders saw the need to create a county-wide Chamber of Commerce for Jefferson County Tennessee. Today, our chamber has over 450 members and has 3 core functions: Economic Development, Tourist Development, and Community Development. Jefferson County’s Chamber is well respected for its innovative programs in Leadership and Community Service.

With an eye to the future, the chamber and the citizens of Jefferson County has just recently completed a county-wide Strategic Action Plan. Foundation Teams and Action Partners are currently assisting Jefferson County as we “Build a Better Future”. This effort will only enhance what Jefferson County has to offer its citizens and businesses.

I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to give us a call and let us know how we can help make your life a more blessed one.
