Benefits for Members

Why Join the Chamber?

Government Advocacy

The Chamber represents the business community before City and County and State government. We track issues that affect local business, report them to our members, and support or oppose legislation involving small business.

GA-RTAC, the Government Affairs - Regional Transportation Advisory Committee, composed of county and City government, State agencies, utilities and our elected officials and community group representatives meet every 3rd Thursday of the month at the Chamber.

Mix and Mingle and Coffee Chat Mixers

Connecting our members is what we do. Members pay no fee to attend our networking events between April and December. These events are truly mixers - no cliches allowed. We introduce newcomers, play a game and and make everyone feel welcome and connected. Most of all, our mixers are super fun! Members may promote their business by hosting a mixer or donating a door prize.
