Join the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce every Third Thursday as we host a series of events to help give you an edge up in building and managing your business through classes, group discussions, and networking.

Masterclasses and Workshops are an hour long session with guest speakers designed to give small businesses coaching on a professional level. Topics covered include Marketing and Social Media, Commercial Insurance, Small Business Tax Breaks, and Hiring and Safety.

Round Tables are designed to bring together members of the same sector (Retail, Bars/Restaurants, Service, Health and Wellness, and Entertainment/Culture/Attraction) to discuss topics that apply to them as an industry. These discussions strengthen our businesses to help problem solve, discuss events, and customer attraction.

Networking brings together potential new members, employers, and referrals and connects them with current members in a casual environment set in local Andersonville hangouts. Every month the Chamber provides one free drink ticket, light bites, and a “Spotlight Professional ” that attends and gives a brief presentation about their business and services to the group.
