Chamber of Commerce serves local businesses

Posted on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 10:42 am

The Morristown Area Chamber of Commerce has served local businesses since 1913. In January of that year, the Morristown Board of Trade and the Young Men’s Commercial Club of Morristown adopted a resolution consolidating the two clubs under the name of the Board of Trade of Morristown, according to the Chamber’s historical data.

In 1920, the Morristown Board of Trade voted to change its  name to the Morristown Chamber of Commerce and in 1924, a Charter of Incorporation was issued to the Morristown Chamber of Commerce.

In 1972, the board of directors changed the name of the Chamber to The Morristown Area Chamber of Commerce, Inc. to include not only Morristown, but also the surrounding trade area.

Whether it is a tourist looking for information on what to do and see in the Lakeway Area; a business owner considering Morristown for a new facility or an expansion of an existing company; a local chamber member in search of information; or someone who is just curious about the area, the Chamber is the place to visit.

Business owners have a common goal to see their businesses grow and prosper. The chamber is committed to helping the Morristown and Hamblen County business community meet this goal.

To further the agenda of success, Chamber members are immediately connected with a professional group of advisers from the moment they join.

Chamber staff are the embodiment of management assistance expertise for financial, organizational, marketing or other related business issues faced each working day.

Another Chamber goal is economic, community, and tourism development to benefit the entire area in addition to the benefits members enjoy.

The Chamber has many activities and initiatives serving one purpose: To make Morristown and the surrounding area a better place for the people who live and work here.

As the voice of the Morristown business community, the Chamber represents local businesses to all levels of government while providing valuable services to its members.

From business information to marketing to educational programs to tourism, the Chamber is constantly developing new beneficial services for the community at large.
