History

4-FIVE_STAR_webSince 1883, the Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce has worked to promote regional economic growth and to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Central Virginia. The Chamber has been accredited since1973, however,  we are recognized nationally with a select number of Chambers for our 20-Year U.S. Chamber of Commerce Accreditation and Five-Star Rating since 2006.  The Lynchburg Regional Chamber is the region’s largest business association, and our government relations programming reflects the interests of our members. For nearly 900 businesses, professionals and organizations in the Lynchburg Region, our goal is to continue to broaden our range of benefits to meet the changing and expanding needs of the business community we serve. The Lynchburg Regional Chamber of Commerce is "Leading Businesses. Leading Communities.™"

In many respects, the Chamber provides tangible services for all who live and work in our community. Activities and programs of the Chamber are overseen by a Board of Directors and implemented both through the staff and an extensive network of member volunteers. The businesses, professionals and organizations that make up the Chamber membership are characteristic of the diversity of employers in our region, both large and small. Almost half of our members have five or fewer employees, and 91 percent have 50 or fewer employees. The Chamber is a business investment, and we urge you to take advantage of the many resources available through Chamber membership — to maximize the return on your investment.
