The Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce established in 1927 is a membership-based organization comprised of nearly 600 businesses and professionals. We believe that the long-term economic vitality of a community is driven by successful businesses. We serve as a unified voice for business in public affairs.
Much of our programming is directed towards building a network of contacts for our members. Spending money locally with other Chamber members expands the community’s economic prosperity. Through various leads groups, business after/before hours, workshops/seminars or our extraordinary Ambassadors program we offer members the opportunity to grow their business.
Perhaps just as important are the initiatives that we undertake to help build a sense and spirit of “community”. When creative, energetic, and passionate people pull together for a common cause, good things happen. In many cases, the Chamber has been an organizing force. Together, through the coordinated efforts of the Chamber, we can accomplish many more things than any of us could do on our own.
Vision | We lead the people of Statesville in creating a thriving community.
Mission | We connect all sectors of the community, generating education and economic opportunities to improve the quality of life.
