Mission: We are the proactive business advocate at local and state levels, educating members on issues and fostering relationships with elected officials.

Ensuring that laws and legislation remain conductive to Statesville's healthy and vibrant business climate is a top priority for the Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber provides a structure for business leaders to communicate effectively with the government.  We are your direct connection to local, state, and federal government officials and policymakers.  Through public policy programs and events, Chamber members have an opportunity to stay up to date on top business, civic and social priorities.
