Our Mission

When you become a member of the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce, you are becoming an important part of a voluntary effort aimed at strengthening Wayne County's economic climate, promoting the county's assets and meeting the growing needs of tomorrow.

Since 1929, the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce has been the unifying voice that enables local businesses to accomplish collectively what cannot be done individually. Ideas, energy and financial support come from a resource pool of over 490 members. The Chamber utilizes this influence to work with other organizations and public officials to help all members of the business community.

In addition, the Chamber replies to thousands of inquiries about your community, business and industry and about the quality of life. It answers every inquiry expeditiously and courteously to create a favorable impression and build positive public relations for Wayne County.
