Your Chamber Advocates for the Business Community
Since 1909, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, now representing over 750 businesses, has served as the leading voice for the business community. The Chamber regularly supports legislation and regulations that reduce the cost of doing business in Michigan and oppose legislation that is over-burdensome and places Michigan-based businesses at a competitive disadvantage with businesses in other states.
The Staff of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce works diligently to maintain close working relationships with all local, state, and federally elected officials in order to stay on top of any and all issues and legislation that could affect the Jackson County business community or our local non-profits. The Jackson County Chamber is the leading driver and advocate for dynamic business and economic development in Jackson County.
