There has never been a better time in history to be in business! The internet, specifically social media, has given business owners access to anyone on the planet. With a few touches on their smart phone, business owners can share their products and services in a global market place. This means you can broadcast what makes your business unique to the world within minutes. Never in the history of business has this been possible. The ability to create an online presence within one hour, and get it into the market place has never been easier than it is today.

Business owners need a place where they can market their business to strategic networking partners while creating an online presence. Business owners also need a place where they can receive information on how to grow their business and discover the pathway to profitability and sustainability. And finally, business owners need introductions to the people who can take their business to the next level.

The Piedmont Black Chamber of Commerce will strive to provide a place that will offer an unparalleled member experience that is always focused on growing your business. We will accomplish this through compelling business instruction in person and online. This allows you to network and expand your business knowledge when it is convenient for you. Our mission is to bring you the latest tactics and strategies to help you and your business grow. That is our promise to you.

I invite you to take a look at us. You will find we are not your typical Chamber Commerce.
