About Us

Business CONNECTS with the Simpsonville Area Chamber.

The Simpsonville Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to being a positive force in providing leadership and advocacy to unite and improve the local business community.

We coordinate professional programs, events, and initiatives designed to create more business opportunities, better living conditions, and a more attractive and desirable community in which to live, work, and visit. Each member of our Staff and Board of Directors is passionate about the role that our Chamber plays in community growth and economic development. We give back to the community and improve the quality of life by influencing issues like public policy, education, and community development. Along with our members and partners, we are proud to be a collective influence that constantly strives to shape Simpsonville and Greenville County.

In addition to our role in supporting the local business community, we also have the unique privilege of serving local visitors and newcomers as the City's official Welcome Center. We maintain a wealth of information on area attractions, restaurants and local shopping, available real estate, and more. We offer customizable Relocation Information Packages, referrals for trustworthy local product and service providers, and much more.

We have a wealth of resources to meet your needs – whether you are looking to grow your business, move into the area, or simply plan a fun trip. Chamber staff are always happy to spend a few minutes with visitors and share all of the reasons we love Simpsonville!

MEMBER REFERRALS

We refer only our member businesses when the community inquires about reputable local goods and services. We share that referral information with you whenever possible so you can follow up.

DIRECTORY LISTINGS

Our members are featured in our annual printed Relocation & Newcomers Guide and in our online Member Directory. Your business will be listed in both versions and viewed thousands of times.

SAVE TIME AND MONEY

Benefit from our partnerships with Office Depot Business Solutions, BCBS of SC, the Greenville Chamber's Pulse program for young professionals and MORE!

BUILD YOUR NETWORK

As you meet and build relationships with fellow members, you will naturally transition to using them as vendors, sounding boards, and as a lead resource for your own business! That goes both ways!

SHAPE OUR COMMUNITY

By joining forces, we all have the opportunity and responsibility to help shape the policies that affect our region. We are stronger together!

Board of Directors

Board members support and advocate the mission of the Chamber, participate in our initiatives and events, assist with fundraising efforts, and share information about our organization with the community. Board members serve three-year terms and represent a wide variety of industries throughout Simpsonville and the Upstate.
