Welcome to the Henry County Chamber of Commerce!
More than a Membership…
it’s a Partnership
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.
