Letter from the Executive Director

Welcome to Shelby County!

With the Leadership of our Board, Ambassadors, Members and Partnerships, it is with no doubt that we will only strive for success in 2011 by implementing the Chamber's vision statement “We are the resource of choice for business, industry and the community” and our mission statement as defined in our 2011-2013 Strategic Plan “To Support stakeholders for the stability and growth of the South Shelby Region by providing services that cultivate economic expansion and growth.” Our goals and areas of primary focus will be:

Economic Development-Increasing occupancy of existing, vacant commercial buildings over the next three years.

Member Benefits-Hosting “New Member” Orientations quarterly, business educational seminars and workshops based on interests of our members, creating awareness of local occupations by participating with schools through speaking opportunities and career fairs.

Improve and Expand Communications with our members and communities.

Expand current funding opportunities to enhance chamber services and develop and maintain partnerships that will support the vision and mission of the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce.

Together we can continue to make our communities the best place to live, work and raise our families!
