The Chamber exists to stimulate and support commerce, community and tourism. In 1978, a group of prominent Forsyth-Monroe County businessmen came together and formed an organization committed to the business community's growth and success. Still today, the Chamber Board of Director's and Staff strive to provide a great place to educate, promote and grow your business or organization. We have adopted 3 simple principles to guide our work, to Inspire, to Support and to Lead. These principles are woven through all of our programs and services. The Chamber's many resources are designed to assist members through whatever stage of business they are in.
