Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce

With more than 200 networking events each year, our members connect with potential customers, city officials and the broader community. These networking opportunities range from AM Networking or Business After Hours at a member business attended by approximately 100 people – to the Chamber’s annual EXPO Chattanooga with more than 2,500 attendees. At these events, members develop sales leads, create business opportunities, receive referrals and form relationships with Chattanooga area business leaders.


Ever wonder how construction on major highways will affect your business?  What companies are bringing jobs to Chattanooga?  How will bike lanes and sidewalk improvements impact customers walking in your door?  What new legislation should you be aware of that might influence the way you do business?

These topics are important to business owners and to the Chamber, and we strive to keep our members in the know with focused programming at our 12 area Councils.

We also keep you informed with our BottomLines e-newsletter and Business Trend magazine, where we feature businesses in our region, economic development news, advice for working smarter and much more.
