Letter from our Chamber President

Welcome to the Berea Chamber of Commerce! Our Chamber plays a vital role in our community in the arena of business networking, pursuing economic growth, enhancing public relations & marketing, and hosting phenomenal events, like the Spoonbread Festival and Geocaching Weekend. Beautiful Berea has so much to offer and we're ready to share it with you. Whether you're an energetic, start-up entrepreneur, who is ready to open a new business's doors for the very first time, or a small business owner whose growth required an upgrade to a larger facility, or if you're searching for a location to expand your industry's operations and engage our local workforce to join you in your success - you can find it all right here in Berea.

Berea is home to working artisans and growing businesses, and is loved by all - individuals, families, children, college students, and retirees. You'll find a rich history, a deep respect for sustainability and green technology, plus an emphasis on education and cultural diversity. Berea was recently designated as a Kentucky Trail Town, which helps to promote its up and coming adventure tourism opportunities. We offer sports and activities for all ages, an impressive City Park, hiking and biking trails, walking paths, geocaches, and kayaking opportunities. Berea is proud to have a great hospital, a globally competitive industry, a variety of locally owned small businesses, Berea College, and two highly ranked public school systems. Our goal as a Chamber is to promote and support all of our businesses and their employees and improve the quality of life in our uniquely beautiful town.

A Chamber membership is your gateway, and first step, into a network that offers ways for you (or your employees) to engage in our business community, and can serve as a catalyst for growing your business. Members who actively participate in the Chamber through networking, committee involvement, support of events, and leadership opportunities, will not only make new friends and develop partnerships, but will witness business exposure and growth that is difficult to duplicate without Chamber involvement.

Feedback and input from our members is what drives us on how to better serve and promote our local business community. If your business is not currently a member, you may be missing out on an amazing opportunity to grow your business and build valuable friendships. I challenge you to not only join our Chamber, but get involved and build your network. Word of mouth continues to be the top advertising tool, and a Chamber membership is the best way to get the word out there about your business. What's the best value for your investment dollars - becoming a member of the Berea Chamber of Commerce.

What is our passion and mission? The mission statement of the Berea Chamber of Commerce is, with integrity, to promote prosperity and enhance the quality of life in Berea, Kentucky by:

  • Supporting the success and growth of current businesses;
  • Encouraging and seeking new business development;
  • Enhancing communication and collaboration; and
  • Promoting Berea as a place to live, work, and explore.

I am honored to serve as the President and look forward to an exciting year. Join me and get involved in growing beautiful Berea's future!

With sincere appreciation,

Jennifer Napier
2016 Chamber President
