Chambers of Commerce
We welcome you to Norton Area Chamber of Commerce online.
The chamber has served the Norton region since 1905. We believe that “a healthy business climate and a thriving community are inseparable”. We will always work hard to provide the tools that businesses need to succeed - this is central to our belief that the health of the business community and the health of the larger community in which we live are inextricable. We work on a regional level with a vision toward creating destination businesses that are driven to excellence and that serve the needs of our diversified economy.
We are leveraging our strengths as business leaders and working collaboratively within our communities to make Norton County a great place to do business. Through Travel & Tourism we are creating a destination branding to attract visitors from around the world. With the City/County Economic Development we are developing strategies for workforce development in all areas, and working with business attraction and retention through many regional and state training and incentive programs. Collaborating with the Community Foundation creates regional funding partnerships and ‘Strategic Doing’ that gets projects off the ground and completed within time-frames that correspond to community needs.
''The Chamber exists to be the catalyst for business growth, the convener for leaders and influencers, and the champion of the communities we represent.''
