Why Join the West Chamber?
The West Chamber Serving Jefferson County exists for the success of business. We support and promote member businesses and provide opportunities for business growth. Because the West Chamber is all about business doing business with business, it is the premier way to meet and develop mutually beneficial relationships with other business people. Businesses need a place where they are welcome to share ideas, meet new people and receive support for themselves and their employees. You need a voice, an organization dedicated to representing your interests and keeping in touch with the issues that impact you, like networking, education, support and advocacy. Our members know that the value they receive is greater than the investment they make.
