About the Chamber

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It…

Thank you for your very professional and prompt response. I went to look for answers to my own questions and quickly realized that the information I was requesting was very easy to find here at the chamber website. In fact everything has been perfect so far. This is by far the most well done chamber website I have seen in SC!
If I could give 100 stars for support and attention to helping me launch my business I definitely would! I joined the Lexington Chamber to connect to other business owners in Columbia and Lexington and the support has been remarkable – I really mean this. The personal support and attention to detail is quite phenomenal. If you are considering joining a chamber in the midlands, then take it from me, you will be extremely pleased.

Where We Are

The Results Don’t Lie

  • Consumers are 63% more likely to buy from chamber members.
  • When business decision-makers believe that a business is a chamber member, they are 59% more likely to buy goods and services from it.

A national survey of 2,000 adults reveals that a business that is a member of a local chamber of commerce is enjoying increasing favorability. In the second such survey in five years, The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based market research firm, found positive attitudes among adults in 2012 have actually increased over the very favorable findings of the first study in 2007.
