If your business can benefit

money in Henry County, call the office to be a member. It costs the business
nothing, and when a certificate is used in your business, let the Chamber
know and a check is written for the amount of the certificate. We all win
because that money stayed in Henry County. We have 15 retail businesses
listed now, and we certainly could use more.
Maintaining your membership
in the Chamber not only helps you, but it helps the entire community. If
there were no chamber, businesses would have no unified voice to promote the
county and its resources. Our executive director goes outside the county to
meetings and events to promote Henry County. It is another arm to make sure
Henry County stays successful.
