The Chamber has two primary functions: providing helpful member services and working to enhance the economic climate so that businesses can thrive. Economic development, the community's infrastructure, taxes and fees, and environmental and social issues all have a place at the Chamber. These are the factors that determine Henderson County's viability as a place for doing business.

The Chamber also provides specific programs and services that assist with the here-and-now needs of businesses. Membership in the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce opens the door to other valuable opportunities.
