About the Chamber

We hope to create a better understanding and appreciation of the importance of business people and concern for their problems. And we work to promote economic programs of civic, social and cultural nature which are designed to increase the functional and aesthetic values of the community.

We hold annual networking opportunities for our members. We promote local retail through our #SupportSumter Buy Local campaign and through our annual Christmas Open House event.  We provide statistical data to assist commercial and retail businesses located in your community. We promote tourism through annual events, regional partnerships and distribution of promotional material.  We also assist businesses with ribbon cuttings, open houses, grand openings, and groundbreaking ceremonies to celebrate their success.
