We’re always juggling about 20 growth projects at any given time! It’s why we can see a bright future for Jackson County & strive to be the consistent voice of progress in our hometown business community in everything we do. #JacksonUp

WHAT WE'RE FOCUSED ON

We are working to shape the future of our hometown business community! Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, along the Tennessee River, our corner of Northeast Alabama is home to Google’s newest data center & primed for tech driven growth!

Our team represents the leading source of small business + tourism growth in Jackson County, Alabama. Every five years, we focus on a program of work set up & backed by community leaders.

We are currently operating under the Gateway to the Future Project, which runs from 2017-2021, accomplishing six initiatives that cover vital economic growth elements.

Industry Driven Talent Development

Business Growth & Recruitment

The Chamber serves as the primary liaison between the business and education communities. In partnership with IMPACT Learning Center and Jackson County EDA, we ensure a relevant push to merge funding & curriculum needs with future workforce demands of business and industry.

We actively expand the County’s tax base through the aggressive retention and growth of the existing retail and commercial business landscape. Additionally, we are partnered with NextSite to recruit new retail and commercial businesses.

Public Policy & Business Advocacy

Jackson County Mountain Movers

Effectively serving as the leading advocate and “Voice of Business” in Jackson County at all government levels. We accomplish this through proactive support of policies that encourage growth and promote an environment in which business can prosper.

Through this group of vibrant professionals, we are committed to providing a platform to attract, retain, cultivate, engage, and promote dynamic leadership throughout Jackson County.

Tourism Development

Branding & Communications

We are responsible for marketing the unique attributes of Jackson County to a targeted spectrum of audiences – ranging from the individual leisure and business traveler to those looking for permanent residence. Between 2001-2019 we’ve grown visitor spending 260% (from $17M to $70M) and will continue to expand our promotions to better impact our economy.

With the announcement of Google’s Data Center in Bridgeport, we are working to become known as “Jackson County, the core of the data corridor between Huntsville and Chattanooga.” Our goal is to communicate, promote, and emphasize the assets of Jackson County to brand the area as a prime location for business and a destination for skilled workers.

D. WILLIAMS DANCE ACADEMY

New to the community, I became a chamber member to expand my resources within the community and to become a resource for others who may need our services.

BLOOMIN' MUSICIANS

It is important to me to be connected to the local community.  Music helps build and grow positive connections within communities and I would like to be able to connect with others so we can share our music. I think the Chamber will help the Studio give back to the community through connections where we can share our music locally. I also think the Chamber can be a place to grow professionally and individually…something that is important to me.
