Economic Development

The most important responsibility of The Greater Columbus, Georgia Chamber of Commerce is economic development. Creating, nurturing and sustaining the economic vitality of our region lies at the very heart of everything we do. We’ve been championing local business for over 165 years. And in that time, we’ve established long and enduring relationships with the merchants and the city fathers, the military ranks and industry leaders, the students and the teachers, the people and the businesses that make Columbus — Columbus.

We invite you to join us in this journey. Together, we will continue to make our region one of the most attractive choices to live and work in all of Georgia. A united effort. A commitment from each of us to all of us. After all, we are your Chamber. Because the Chamber is YOU!
