Each fall marks the beginning of our volunteer-driven total resource campaign for the Gwinnett Chamber, and we are excited to have nearly 40 teams and more than 200 volunteers participating this year, led by our 2009 Campaign Co-Chairs Ron and Laurie Garrard with Garrard Construction. We”ll be recruiting new members and sponsors as we continue our successful efforts to enhance Gwinnett and metro Atlanta”s reputation as one of the best places to live and work in the U.S.
The Gwinnett Chamber”s vision is simple – it”s about success. To help you as an
individual succeed, help your company succeed and help our community succeed. That”s why our community”s motto is "Success Lives Here." And the chamber”s
servant-leadership role in creating opportunities for success is evident in our motto, "In Business For You."
Named one of the top three metro chambers in the U.S. by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives, the Gwinnett Chamber is one of the largest and most
dynamic business and regional economic development organizations in the southeastern United States. With more than 2,500 companies representing a combined employment of more than 750,000 employees and more than $200 billion in
revenue, the Gwinnett Chamber is a leader in job creation and retention, community development, and in growing local businesses for Gwinnett County, metro Atlanta and the Innovation Crescent regions of Georgia.
Unlike most chambers our size, we are focused on entrepreneurial and growth-stage companies, and nearly 85 percent of our members are small businesses with less than 50 employees. We are also regional in scope with approximately 32 percent of our members headquartered outside of Gwinnett County.
The Gwinnett Chamber works in six key areas: economic development, small business and entrepreneurial development, education, public policy, membership development and communications. Community development efforts also include programs to promote the arts, revitalization, law enforcement and leadership development.
