The mission of the Hancock Chamber of Commerce is to promote the economic, social, and civic well-being of Hancock County with an emphasis on the promotion of industrial, tourism, retail, and agricultural business.

Join the Chamber GraphicThe Hancock Chamber of Commerce is the county’s largest business advocacy organization. Through our 1,500 member representatives, we bring together the collective vision of our area businesses, community partners, elected officials, young professionals, youth, educators, non-profit organizations and engaged citizens to work cooperatively for the future of our community. From every corner of the county, we’re working to create more successful businesses, work opportunities, and a better life for our citizens. It’s a team effort. By being a member of the Chamber, you are supporting those efforts year-round to promote the economic, social, civic and well-being of Hancock County.

The Chamber’s strength in this community, and with local, state and federal issues, rests on its members and their investment in the community and our organization. Get involved with the Chamber, buy local, and support our members in order to keep the Hancock County area a growing and thriving community. Through our customer development events, marketing opportunities, advocacy efforts and many other membership benefits, we believe it is the best investment you can make to attain success.

The Chamber has numerous programs benefiting our members. While some programs assist and promote business, other programs help develop local business leaders into community leaders. More than 400 Chamber members have graduated from the Chamber’s Leadership Hancock County program since its inception in 1996.
