The History

In the early 1980s, 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.

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 continue to follow the ideals set forth by those early leaders. 

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.
