Chamber of Commerce
The Chamber gathers statistics, prints brochures, visits new businesses, answers inquiries and advertises what a great place Carroll County is to work, live, and enjoy life. To accomplish this goal the chamber acts as a catalyst for business professionals to work together for the common good of the community. A better community means better business conditions for everyone. The chamber does whatever is necessary to keep the area's economic development at a high level where businesses find it profitable to operate. We represent and promote the area's self-image in economy, and encourage industry investments to broaden our county tax base, and provide employment and opportunities for our residents. Chambers of late are increasingly involved in non-commercial ventures as well: that is, education, environment, government, and cultural and social concerns. They have become a viable force in seeking solution to today's social and socioeconomic problems and influence national, state, and local legislation, which effect businesses. Only by succeeding in these fundamental goals can we provide the jobs that produce the means to enjoy the standards of government, education, culture, and charitable institutions we aspire to.
