The Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce's chief mission is to strengthen and advance local businesses, but a vibrant community is essential to carrying out this goal. This is why our programs and activities extend far beyond ribbon-cuttings and cocktail receptions.
The Chamber supplies the Greater Decatur community with the leadership, resources and enthusiasm needed to strengthen EDUCATION, POLITICAL ADVOCACY, COMMUNITY IMAGE, NEIGHBORHOODS and TRANSPORTATION. These improvements enhance our regional quality of life and help area businesses attract and retain the highest caliber workforce.
We believe Decatur has the potential to become a WORLD-CLASS community - and the Chamber is dedicated to turning this potential into reality.
The Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce is focused on education. We work diligently to improve our community's work force by offering educational programs such as quarterly Ag Cafes, business seminars and the Decatur Leadership Institute. The Chamber also fully supports the Decatur Area Education Coalition's mission to make Decatur and Macon County one of the most educated communities in Illinois.
The Chamber takes care of politics so you can take care of your business. We are a respected voice when it comes to protecting and promoting free enterprise and minimizing government interference and taxation. The Chamber monitors and informs members about issues of importance to business. From City Council to Congress, we make sure the people who make the laws hear your concerns. Through organizations such as CIPAC and PARAGON, the Chamber continually promotes the best interests of the community.
