Established in 1934 but chartered in 1941, the Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce is a business association consisting of voluntary membership and a professional staff who invest their time and money in community development programs which allow citizens the opportunity to work together to improve the economic, civic, and cultural well-being of our area.
