Serving Our Members & Community

Since 1904, we have served our members and the community by fostering relationships and strengthening the ties that have secured Athens’ position as the hub of northeast Georgia.

Today 246 West Hancock Avenue serves as a “one-stop shop” for business in Athens by housing not only the Chamber of Commerce but also the Clarke County Mentor Program, the Department of Economic Development of Athens-Clarke County, Industrial Development Authority and Athens Cultural Affairs Commission. Under the leadership of former mayor Doc Eldridge, the Chamber has realized its vision of being the regional leader on issues vital to a thriving business community.
