The term “Chamber of Commerce” dates back more than 400 years.  A chamber of commerce is a local network of businesses, governed by a board of directors and run by professional staff, who work to serve and advance business interests.  Chambers strive to increase wealth and prosperity within their communities by facilitating the growth of existing businesses and fostering the development of new ones.  Like professional and trade associations, chambers of commerce are not-for-profit, tax-exempt organizations as outlined in section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code.


The Burke County Chamber of Commerce has been a trusted resource for local, regional and national businesses and their employees since 1945.  We are an independent organization governed exclusively by our local board of directors and not a construct of a national or state organization.  Members rely on our full calendar of networking and learning opportunities as well as our assistance in navigating complex issues facing the business community.  The Burke County Chamber of Commerce works every day to build a stronger community for businesses and for residents.
