Strategic Plan

The Oconee County Chamber of Commerce serves the businesses and communities in Oconee County.  We are moving forward with our mission, vision and goals as follows:

Increase membership and develop more opportunity for member participation and support

  •  Membership Mentors – creating initial connections/partnerships/retention     
  • Assist with new business development (as resource of information)
  • Assist municipalities with new business development (identifying potential business needs/opportunities)
  •  Assist existing businesses with market/legislative/or other challenges as needed     
  • Increase communication and involvement of members and strategic partners through all channels including one-on-one meetings facilitated by membership committee members
  • Develop and sponsor a 20 Under 40 program highlighting young professionals that live and work in Oconee County

New Business Development and Assistance

  •  Business planning/licensing guide overview from county and individual municipalities – currently on Chamber website
  •  Support member cross-sell, buy local initiatives
  •  Cultivate stakeholders and facilitate partnerships across the County, an example is the Palmetto Conservation Foundation (Palmetto Trail)
  •  Be a resource of information

Personnel Committee Formed 

  •     Review job descriptions and personnel assignments
  •     Develop performance matrices for accountability and efficiency
  •    Review pay scales, work schedules, hours of each position


  • Develop and facilitate a more strategic marketing plan
Legislative Advocacy
  • Proactive representation of members’ business interests to state legislative delegation, County Council and municipal governments.
  • Be a resource for members on information and issues that impact their businesses or the County as a whole

As we move forward with each of these objectives and make progress in each action area, we will continue to refine and/or refocus our goals and objectives.  It is imperative that the Chamber’s vision be periodically evaluated to ensure we continue to meet our mission, goals and the on-going, yet ever-changing needs of our members and the communities we serve.
