About Us

In the early 1980’s, a group of visionary leaders saw a great need to create a county-wide    Chamber of Commerce that serviced the needs of all the municipalities in Jefferson County including Baneberry, Dandridge, Jefferson City, New Market and White Pine.

Today, our Chamber has over 325 members that are focused on one common goal — to make Jefferson County the best possible place to live, work, play and do business. With an eye to the future, the Chamber, its member businesses and the citizens of Jefferson County recently completed a county-wide Strategic Action Plan. 

As a staff, we are committed to making a positive impact on our members and their businesses. Our primary goal is to be more member-centric and work hard to be more supportive of our members and their initiatives.

We truly value your involvement, input and participation and we love to hear from YOU!

Here to Serve

Here for you, in all the ways that matter most to your business...

We’re proud to be the face of the business community and the engine of commerce for Jefferson County.

The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to providing the best possible environment for local business growth and development.

We’re on the front lines, when it comes to folks looking to relocate to our area, consumers seeking goods and services, visitors coming to enjoy our natural beauty and cultural richness, or companies searching for a site upon which to build a facility or expand operations.

Chamber membership provides real value—to your company directly, and to the community at large.

We have a whole toolkit of resources to bring to bear on your behalf, and we are here to provide you with the help you need to succeed. The high profile we enjoy in the community and the unlimited exposure we can offer through our website and other venues can be a difference-maker to your business.

Your membership in the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce carries with it an opportunity for involvement—to whatever extent you wish—in your community. Through networking, participation on Chamber committees, or volunteering on a Chamber-sponsored service project, your annual membership dues are truly an investment in your community.

A strategy for success: our team approach allows businesses to accomplish in partnership what could not be done individually.

The Chamber’s strength lies in recruiting and retaining the greatest number of businesses and individuals as members. Our membership creates a pool of resources from which we draw ideas, talent, energy, and financial support.

We look forward to getting to know more about you and your business. We promise to listen to you, learn from you, and work hard for you.
