Become an Owen County Chamber Member

The Owen County Chamber of Commerce exists to foster good relationships between businesses and the community while enriching the business environment in Owen County. We have provided programs and activities that portray the wonderful aspects of living, working and doing business in this community by supporting local community efforts and events, providing opportunities for members of the business community to connect and network and keeping abreast of the activities of local and state government.

The Chamber sponsors such events as: Sweet Owen Day, Administrative Professionals Recognition, Educational Staff Appreciation Day, The Wall of Fame, Christmas Parade, and Leadership Owen County. In addition, the Chamber provides a monthly breakfast meeting on the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 7:15AM at the Smith House Restaurant, where Chamber members have the opportunity to network and learn about efforts and initiatives happening in the community and the state. We also host an annual meeting in November where we enjoy an outstanding speaker, dinner, and honor the Business Person of the Year, Business of the Year and Wall of Fame recipient.

Along with these and other events, we invite and encourage you to become involved in Chamber activities and initiatives through the various committees organized to plan and execute many of the programs sponsored by the Chamber. It truly takes a team to create the kind of thriving community and business environment that we all envision and hope for. Thanks to your membership involvement, the Owen County Chamber of Commerce is now the largest business/civic organization in the county, with a membership of over 100 members. Our achievements would not be possible without members like you.

As we embark on our 2017 membership drive, the Investment Schedule is enclosed with this letter. Please note on your member application how you would like to be listed. We look forward to a banner year as we work together for the betterment of our community and greater success in our business enterprises.
