Vision Statement:

Clay County is revered for its history and is an ideal location for business and family. Our diverse economy forms a strong business and employment base which includes manufacturing, distribution, agriculture, education, healthcare and the retail sectors. The natural environment has always played a key role in Clay County's identity, whether it is the lazy Eel River, numerous fishing ponds, gorgeous woodland, convenient access to I70, State Roads 42, 59, and 46 or the rich farmlands. The people of Clay County invite you to enjoy all that we have to offer and it is our hope you enjoy your stay.

Mission Statement:

To serve as a resource for business, citizens, and visitors, while promoting and fostering economic growth and improving the quality of life in Clay County, Indiana.

Welcome to the 2012-2013 Clay County Chamber of Commerce action plan. It is because of our members that we have such a great community and business environment. That is why the Chamber has one singular focus. We want the community to succeed; WE WANT TO MAKE PROGRESS FOR YOU……. TODAY!!!

In 2013, our Chamber will develop several new programs to help your business and the community to grow and succeed. First, we will develop a new and robust website. Amongst many additional features we will provide our members with easier access to other members, upcoming events and local community activities and information.

The second initiative is to increase Chamber membership by 20%, growing our membership from 127 to 152 members by end of the year. We will accomplish this through providing ˝ off membership dues for the first year. We will also have monthly membership committee meetings to develop new potential members and review lost memberships.

Our third initiative is to provide educational opportunities to our members and community. We will accomplish this through the monthly programs. We want to bring good quality, informative, timely and pertinent content to our members. We will also develop relationships with other community organizations and businesses to bring more educational opportunities to our members.


Membership in your local Chamber of Commerce provides an effective means of communication for all persons concerned with the social and economic development of the county. It also provides an opportunity to network with fellow business people to discuss local concerns at the monthly membership lunch.  As a member, you are entitled to access to the Chamber Membership List for business purposes. You will receive a monthly newsletter - "The Chambergram" - which announces upcoming events and other pertinent news.

Members have an avenue to low cost, highly visible, advertising one the Chamber Website. The Chamber office refers incoming calls about products and services to its members. The Chamber offers monthly presenters at its membership meetings that provide helpful information about the latest legislation and innovation affecting business. The Chamber offers access to new markets through networking. Being a member of the Chamber says that your business supports the community which adds credibility to the business’ ethical reputation. There is an opportunity to advertise your business at all Chamber sponsored events. The Chamber of Commerce offers its meeting room, free of charge, to all members for their use. The chamber offers a great deal of current information published about activities at the State House and at the federal level.

Our last area of focus is our local businesses. We want to be an advocate for our businesses as they are the heartbeat of our community.
