Who is our Chamber of Commerce?
The Dublin-Laurens County Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of the business community. It unites business and professional individuals, therefore, creating a central agency that focuses on improving business and building a better community. The Chamber of Commerce enables these people to accomplish collectively what they could not do individually. At the Dublin-Laurens County Chamber, our strength lies in partnering with the greatest number of individuals and businesses, thereby creating a pool of resources from which ideas, energy, and finances can be drawn.
What does our Chamber do?
The main responsibility of the Dublin-Laurens Chamber of Commerce is the community’s economic well being. We work to increase wealth and prosperity by facilitating the growth of existing businesses and fostering new ones. This new wealth can be directed toward establishing and improving civic, educational, and cultural facilities to create the proper business climate for attracting more business and industry.
Who can belong to the Chamber?
All businesses, industries, and professionals are not only eligible to be Chamber of Commerce members, but should be! In addition to investing in the growth of the community, Chamber members also receive many benefits. Chamber members are referred on a daily basis to other businesses, industries and individuals looking to relocate in the Dublin-Laurens County area. Chamber members are also eligible for discounted health care rates, auto rates and are invited to networking events, such as: Business after Hours, Business and Breakfast, Industry & Business Appreciation Day, Annual Irish Chamber Breakfast, Annual Legislative Update, Chamber Membership Appreciation Day and the Annual Membership Meeting. In addition, all of our Chamber members have an open invitation to attend any, or all, Board meetings.
How is the Chamber Financed?
The Dublin-Laurens Chamber of Commerce is supported primarily by members of the business community who are interested in stimulating new and improved business and in building a better community. The investment amount paid each year to the Chamber of Commerce should be considered as an “investment in the Member’s business and in the future of the community.” It is not charity or a donation.
The Dublin-Laurens Chamber of Commerce is accredited through the United States Chamber of Commerce, as well as, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
