The Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce has proudly served Clarksville-Montgomery County for 115 years. Since 1905, countless volunteers have pursued a common mission: to enhance the quality of life for Clarksville residents by working to promote business and economic development and represent the interests of Chamber membership.

Today, the Chamber represents more than 800 member businesses accounting for nearly 30,000 full-time employees. Members work in retail, finance, education, healthcare, real estate, government, law, communications, transportation, and many other industries.

To effectively represent this broad and diverse membership base, Chamber volunteers and staff work daily to maintain a business-friendly environment in which existing businesses can flourish and new businesses can bring economic impact and jobs to Clarksville-Montgomery County.

The Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce has a board of directors made up of business and community leaders. The board helps to make important decisions about the annual goals for the Chamber as well as the day to day business of the four-person Chamber staff.
