Chairman’s Message

Dear Greater Dalton Chamber Members:

On behalf of the entire Executive Board of Directors, thank you for your partnership with your Chamber. We are proud that you are a member of the largest voice of business in Northwest Georgia!

Our Chamber continues to make great progress under the leadership of President and CEO Brian Anderson and his staff of professionals. The Chamber is a strong and respected voice in our community’s affairs. Our willingness to be proactive in moving important initiatives forward continues to bring significant value in many areas: Grow Greater Dalton, Emerging Leaders Institute, The Archway Partnership, and Readers 2 Leaders –are just a few that come to mind.

Grow Greater Dalton has become the cornerstone of our economic development efforts. This initiative lets the entire nation know that we are still rolling out the “you know what” for new, expanding and diversified business in our community.

As always, the Chamber will continue our extensive leadership development programs, including both Leadership Dalton-Whitfield and our Emerging Leaders Institute program. I am convinced that the way to build successful businesses is to build successful people, and then provide the opportunities and resources they need.

The Archway Partnership continues to carry out their vision: “Dalton-Whitfield County will be the economic engine of Northwest Georgia, internationally recognized for its innovative business environment, its commitment to high-quality educational opportunities, and its stewardship of the abundant natural resources with which our community has been entrusted.”

As a Chamber member you have access to numerous member services and opportunities to let your opinions be heard. I encourage you to take advantage of the myriad of networking opportunities the Chamber provides. Don’t forget we offer at least 3 networking opportunities each month, so come join us!

Your involvement in the Greater Dalton Chamber is critical to our community’s future success, as we seek to speak for the business community with a unified voice. Thank you for your partnership. I look forward to a wonderful year together!
