Message from the President

Comprised of over 500 business members and over 900 member representatives, the Board and I strive to lead this Chamber with a member focus.   Guided by our values of honesty, integrity and respect for each person, we endeavor to develop programs and services that will support business and industry and help them grow and be competitive in this global economy. 

With a member-elected Board that sets policy and has oversight responsibility for this Chamber, many volunteers work to support the Chamber.  Without these community-minded individuals, businesses, industries, and organizations, a Chamber could not function. 

A vibrant and responsive chamber is necessary to the economic health and well being of a community.  This Chamber provides leadership programs, both youth and adult, that groom the future leadership for Habersham County.  We support education by sponsoring programs such as the STAR Student/STAR Teacher, academic excellence, partners in education and more.  Our Business Resource Center—a partnership among North Georgia Technical College, Piedmont College and the Chamber—provides free assistance to entrepreneurs and existing business in areas of market research, business plan development/expansion, leadership, technology recommendations and more.

If you plan to visit Habersham County, contact the Chamber or drop by and let us help you plan your visit.  Habersham County is the “outdoor recreation” jewel of northeast Georgia.  While staying in Habersham, a 30-minute drive will get you to several close by attractions.  For more information, contact us at 706-778-4654 or habchamber@windstream.net or visit our website at www.habershamchamber.com.

Hope to see you soon,

 

Judy Taylor, PhD

President
