Why join the chamber?
The Henrietta and Clay County Chamber of Commerce is committed to supporting your business through networking opportunities, business visibility and committee involvement. Members can be as involved as they want. The happiest members are those who attend events regularly and stay connected through our email blasts. For the new painter, the chamber can help build referrals. For the new restaurant, the chamber will organize a ribbon cutting to increase your exposure. For the corporation, the chamber can serve as a partner with the Economic Development director. The chamber stays alive because of members who believe in the grow of this county and who take part in making in a fun place to work and live.
