What is the Chamber of Commerce
The Seymour Chamber of Commerce is an organization of citizens who are investing their time and money in a community development program – working together to improve the economic, civic, and cultural fortitude of the region, community, and area. Any citizen who is interested in helping develop the community is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The direct benefit is a stronger local economy, more businesses and more jobs with higher salaries and better fringe benefits. The indirect benefits are more public programs, better schools, and less crime. The work of the Chamber is financed by the investments of its members. The dues' structure is designed to permit even the smallest business, or individual, to be a member. The Chamber of Commerce is guided by a Board of Directors, chamber members who are business leaders in the area served.
