Life in Henry County
From the President's Desk
Welcome to the Henry County Chamber. It wasn’t too long ago that someone said those exact words to me.
As a catalyst for business growth, we provide numerous programs and resources to businesses and business leaders that support the businesses and create the jobs that strengthen the region.
The Chamber is a convener of business leaders and community influencers. We leverage the scale and diversity of our entire region. We foster a culture of collaboration to address challenges, create solutions, and enhance our community.
It requires a champion to defend business values and make bold steps forward on important business matters. Our advocacy efforts continue at all levels of government as we promote policies supporting job creation, business retention, and economic growth.
The Henry Chamber: More than a membership; it’s a partnership.

AN INTROVERTS GUIDE TO NETWORKING
Alisa Kirk, Area Director, The UGA Small Business Development Center at Clayton State University
Do you ever go to a networking event where there are people who seem fearless? These people approach others, always know the right thing to say, and seem to know most of the people in the room. The truth is, these people are probably introverts. They circulate and say the right things because they’ve worked on it: they know their strategy entering the room, and they know what they want to happen. They have honed their skills and learned the secrets to great networking. It’s time for you to learn them, too.
