We offer more than 250 events each year designed to grow our member’s businesses, networks and leadership skills while also cutting expenses and business costs.

Why is the Gwinnett Chamber’s work so important?

Gwinnett’s population has soared over the past 20 years, making it the second largest county in Georgia and larger than 4 states and the District of Columbia. Today, 1 in 5 Metro Atlantans and 1 in 10 Georgians are Gwinnettian. As the state leader in job creation, if Gwinnett is successful, metro Atlanta and Georgia are successful.

The Gwinnett Chamber is the only organization focused on job creation, small business growth and improving the quality of life in Gwinnett County in addition to the metro Atlanta and Georgia’s Innovation Crescent regions.

The Gwinnett Chamber is the only organization, by its nature, that can bring together leaders from business, government, education, and healthcare to proactively address our most pressing local and regional needs.

Success doesn’t happen by accident. A reputation for leading the state in job creation and average household income; having the highest performing public schools; the nation’s best parks; and being named the Best Place to Live and Launch a Business by Money and Fortune Small Business magazines are the culmination of years of powerful partnerships between the Chamber and our strategic partners. The Gwinnett Chamber rallies the business community to support these partners to create a culture and environment for positive things to happen.
