Jackson Chamber of Commerce
Several years ago, the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership Board of Directors took a public position stating that Jackson must be healthy and vibrant to ensure sustainable positive growth. To better address the issues and opportunities in Jackson, the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership Board of Directors created the Jackson Chamber of Commerce within the parent organization’s umbrella. Established in November 2006, the Jackson Chamber of Commerce has its own board of directors to govern the effort. The mission of the Jackson Chamber is to improve quality of life in the city of Jackson, promote diversity, and promote a business climate favorable to economic and community development for the benefit of all its residents.
