Welcome to the Henry County Chamber of Commerce!
More than a Membership…
it’s a Partnership
Life in Henry County
Message From the President
The Chamber takes a leadership role in actively bringing together the collective visioning of the business community, elected officials, infrastructure organizations and key civic and business leaders by facilitating an annual Intergovernmental Retreat to foster cooperation and understanding on shared topics of vital concern to the growth and development of Henry County.
Henry County is located “Comfortably south of Atlanta,” with only a 20-minute access to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the ability to arrive at locations in either Atlanta or Macon in an hour’s time, or to make the 3 and 1/2 hour trek all the way to the coast. Its seven exits along Interstate 75 afford easy access to member businesses, recreation, dining and lodging.
The Chamber’s 700 business members range from large corporations to locally-owned and operated entities. Each member is both vital and valued and the Chamber promotes the “Shop Local – Shop Henry” program.
The largest sporting venue in the state, Atlanta Motor Speedway, is located in Henry County. Our residents enjoy a premier hospital and healthcare specialists, as well as excellent educational facilities. There are numerous recreational opportunities. The Chamber website offers valuable information on living, working and visiting our county.
We hope you will visit often – or join us!
David H. Gill, President & CEO

Topic: Retirement, Exit Planning and Investing — Planning for Your Future
Speaker: Shane Hunter, CFP – Financial Advisor, Stewardship Financial Advisors
When it comes to finances, we have to prepare for every season! Whether you’re a business owner or someone’s employee, you have likely found yourself questioning just how financially prepared you are for the future. You may ask: Am I investing and saving enough and am I doing this responsibly? What will happen to my family and my business if I am injured…or worse? Am I doing everything I should to prepare for retirement? When I retire, what should I do with my business? These are just a few of the questions you may have about your financial stability.
Join us for the April Business boosters Luncheon, as Shane Hunter guides us thorough the financial seasons of our life and business.
