Welcome to the Grenada Area Chamber of Commerce
We invite you to explore our website and see the many facets of our dynamic chamber and community, or better yet, come see us in person!
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.
Guided by the strategic plan, developed by the board of directors, the Chamber serves the business community as a collective voice of commerce, provides programs and services to improve the economic environment for its members, and supplies leadership for improving the quality of life. The Chamber unifies the public spirit of our community and directs it into useful and constructive channels.
Being a member of the Chamber means investing in the future of the area and it is good for business – your business.
