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!

The Chamber is a strong and respected voice in our community’s affairs. We will continue our pro-business agenda and connectivity on local, state and national levels. We remain a strong and respected voice.

We have been making progress and continue to grow the Hispanic Advisory Council and are in-tune with our young professionals through the efforts with the Young Professionals of Northwest Georgia.

We will continue to partner with Dalton State College and Georgia Northwestern Technical College on workforce development through career and technical education.

The Chamber continues 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 Chamber has launched a five year community strategic plan that is called Believe Greater Dalton and it includes six strategies: create an education partnership to align greater Dalton’s talent pipeline; pursue a competitive and diverse housing stock; establish downtown Dalton as a destination district; sustain a best-practice economic development program; create a scalable physical hub for entrepreneurship in downtown Dalton; and launch a campaign to enhance community pride.

As a Chamber member you have access to numerous member services and opportunities to let your opinions be heard. Don’t forget we offer many benefits to you online such as job postings and hot deals that you can use from the comfort of your office. I do encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities the Chamber provides. In addition to the Business Expo, we have meet-ups each month that focus on sales, exposure and assistance.

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!
