About the Chamber

The Chambers’ purpose is to generate a positive economic impact by involving the entire membership and utilizing their individual expertise. Our goal is to help our business community prosper and grow in such a way the impact of our business community is felt throughout the entire County of Henderson.

The Athens Chamber of Commerce has experienced many positive changes over the past years and so has our community. We have seen the evolution of existing events and the invention of new programs. All of these are aimed at supporting the membership by enhancing the quality of life, promoting business, and improving the economic development in the Athens area. You can feel the change throughout Athens; a greater sense of unity and urgency by everyone to address the issues we face as a community. 

New programs such as: Ladies Night Out, and Lakes – Clays - & Fairways will help make Athens a destination for visitors and new residents alike. Growth in events such as the Henderson County GO TEXAN Rodeo and the Farm & Ranch Tour, show the Chamber’s commitment to Athens’ agricultural roots and their effect on the Athens future.
