About Us

The Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce is an association of business people concerned about improving the area in which they do business.  We are a non-profit organization.  Our strength lies in the number and diversity of our membership.  Both large and small businesses from virtually every profession are represented and influence the direction of the Chamber's programs.  These programs are financed by membership investments.

The more members the Chamber has, the better we can represent the business community.  We accomplish collectively what no business could do alone.

We are not a department of the city, county or state government; a political body, a civic club of professional society; a social service, welfare, or charitable institution; a private advertising, publicity or public agency.

 

Chamber History 

The Chamber, in its present form, was created in 1947 as the Greenville Business Men’s Association for the purpose of obtaining the former Camp Reynolds site as an industrial park.  Since that time the Chamber has had several name changes to reflect its growth in Northern Mercer County.  We now have members not only in Greenville but in Jamestown, Sandy Lake, Transfer, and select area of the county.  Our trade area is considered all of Northern Mercer County. 

 

The Organization

What Is the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce?

The Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of business and professional men and women who have joined together for the purpose of promoting the civic and commercial progress of our community.

The area's economic well-being is related directly to the caliber of work that is done by the Chamber.  That is why the Greenville Area Chamber has major impact on business, income and future growth of the area.

There are two primary functions of a chamber of commerce:  (1) it acts as spokesperson for the business and professional community and translates into action the group thinking of its members, and (2) it renders specific services of a type that can be most effectively rendered by a community organization both to its members and to the community as a whole.
