On October 15, 1957 a group of businessmen and citizens met for the purpose of organizing the Summersville Area Chamber of Commerce. For the past 50 plus years, the organization has remained a vibrant and important part of the community of Summersville.
The purpose of the Chamber is for the advancement of civic, commercial, industrial and agricultural interests of the City of Summersville and surrounding territory. The Chamber has worked on issues of community interest and provided business leadership for the improvement of economic development, education and healthcare.
The Chamber is not a social club. The mission of the Summersville Area Chamber of Commerce is very clear: to advance the general welfare and prosperity of the Summersville area so that its citizens and all areas of its business community shall prosper. All necessary means of promotion shall be provided and particular attention and emphasis shall be given to the economic, civil, commercial, industrial, and educational interest of the area.
