The Membership Development Committee of the Chamber is proud to present The Pickens County Certified Chamber Members. Implemented in 2015, the Certified Chamber Program was designed to recognize our members who dedicate their time and resources to the betterment of our community, as well as support our Chamber.
The Committee created the program after the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce was designated as one of the first 25 Certified Chambers in the State of Georgia in 2011, with over 150 Chambers in the State. Chambers continue to strive for this State designation, but to date less than 50% in the State of Georgia have received this designation.
